Apex, NC (Vocus) September 14, 2010
Progress Solar Solutions, LLC iis expanding its U.S. and Canada distribution of the Progress Solar Light Tower through United Rentals, the largest rental equipment company in North America.
The Progress Solar Light Tower (SLT600) is made in the U.S. and operates independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid eliminating the use of fossil fuels or generation of carbon emissions. The Solar Light Tower is a rugged, mobile light system that provides high-intensity, bright white lighting on-demand, where and when you need it. It is equipped with high quality Solar Modules housed on automated solar wings that are positioned toward the sun to capture its energy; four (4) solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a no maintenance, long-life Power Module to store energy for use when needed at night or during inclimate weather. The light tower is fully adjustable from 12-30ft in height, able to tilt up/down and can rotate 360 degrees. The solid-state LED flood lights provide a tremendous amount of light with very little power required; instant-on/off with no flickering; extremely reliable, vibration and shatter resistant; and designed to provide up to 5x longer 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 automatically from dusk-to-dawn, at user-programmable time intervals or manually on-demand. The system is on a portable trailer for maximum functionality and convenience that can be easily towed to its destination.
Dan Robertson, a partner for Progress Solar Solutions, commented, We are excited about the expansion of our distribution network to include United Rentals. This should offer their clients "a practical, cost-effective, environmentally-friendly lighting solution that is ideal for outdoor special & recreation events; construction work sites; mining, oil or gas; storm & disaster recovery; and security applications". "The portable Progress Solar Light Tower provides brilliant white LED lighting and is powered by free renewable energy from the sun…NO diesel fuel, NO noise, and NO carbon emissions"
