Apex, NC (Vocus) September 21, 2010
Sunbelt Rentals, one of the largest equipment rental companies in the U.S. is introducing the “environmentally friendly” solar light tower to its customers for rent or purchase. This portable light tower provides brilliant white LED lighting for any type of outdoor lighting need and is powered by renewable energy from the sun.
There are several advantages of the Progress Solar(TM) Light Tower (SLT600) in comparison to traditional diesel light towers:
Functional Improvements - in day-to-day operation include the elimination of: fuel acquisition runs, the need to refuel multiple light towers, manually turning diesel units on/off, routine engine maintenance and frequent light bulb changes.
Environmental Benefits - the move to solar completely eliminates carbon emissions and noise. The move to LED lights reduces light pollution, eliminates mercury and frequent disposal of metal halide light bulbs.
Financial Savings - result from the elimination of diesel fuel, labor for daily fuel and engine maintenance and operation, as well as the significantly longer life of LED lights. Additionally, tax incentives may apply.
Made in the U.S., the SLT600 provides high-intensity, bright white lighting on demand and operates independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid, eliminating the use of fossil fuels or release of carbon emissions. The Solar Module includes automated solar wings that are positioned toward the sun; four (4) solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a long-life, no maintenance Power Module to store energy for use at night or during inclement weather. The light tower is adjustable from 12-30 feet in height and able to tilt up/down or rotate 360 degrees. The solid-state LED flood lights allow for instant-on/off with no flickering, are vibration resistant and up to five times more run time between bulb changes than metal halide lights. The solar/light control module protects the system from over/under charging and the lights can be turned on/off at programmable time intervals or on-demand. The system is towable and housed on a rugged portable trailer for maximum functionality.
