Progress Solar Solutions™, LLC the pioneers of solar and wind powered light towers, market-share leader and manufacturer of towable Progress Solar™ and Progress Solar/Wind™ Light Towers is now offering a skid-mount version of its popular portable solar powered outdoor light plants. This new offering adds to the largest selection of towable outdoor lighting systems powered by renewable energy (sun and wind power). Progress Solar offers products that work anywhere including the extremes from dessert heat to arctic cold. The skid-mount unit can be moved via fork-lift or by crane hook and is designed to be transported by a flatbed truck. The units can be easily mounted directly to concrete, wood, matting or simply dropped onto any relatively level location.

Progress Solar™ had its fourth consecutive year of significant growth in 2012 with recent expansions in its manufacturing capabilities. Progress Solar is a preferred or approved vendor for many of the top U.S. Equipment Rental Companies and also distributes in many other countries ex-U.S. The Progress Solar and Solar/Wind Light Towers are made in the U.S. (patents pending) and resemble a traditional towable diesel light tower, but are designed to operate on renewable energy eliminating or minimizing the use of fossil fuels or generation of carbon emissions. The light plants can be powered a number of ways. They are powered primarily by two on-board solar power generators and an optional wind generator housed above the custom LED flood lights. And for redundancy and as a backup, the large battery bank stores numerous days of lighting (now up to 60 hours run time on a full battery bank) and can always be charged via an on-board, dual-bank AC power charger (backup), if ever needed.

The Progress Solar Series of Light Towers are rugged, mobile, outdoor lighting systems that provide high-intensity, bright white lighting on-demand, where and when you need it. It is equipped with high power generating Solar Modules housed on automated solar wings that can be optimally positioned toward the sun to maximize solar energy gain; an optional wind turbine at the top of the telescoping mast; four (4) or more solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a long-life Power Module with AGM, no maintenance, sealed, deep-cycle batteries to store energy for use when needed at night or during inclimate weather. The light tower is fully adjustable from 12-30ft in height, lights can be individually tilted up/down and the mast can be rotated to direct the light exactly where it is needed. The solid-state LED flood lights provide a tremendous amount of light, minimize power requirements; provide instant-on/off with no flickering; are extremely reliable, vibration and shatter resistant; and designed to provide up to 5x longer run time between bulb changes than historically used high-intensity-discharge lights (on diesel light plants). The Solar/Light Control Module protects the system from over/under charging and the lights can be turned on/off automatically from a timer, at user-programmable time intervals or manually on-demand. The system is on a portable trailer customized for maximum functionality and convenience and can be easily towed to its destination.

Developed in 2017, the STI-H250™ is consists of two linked torsion beams that rotate simultaneously following the sun's path. They are moved by just one motor, cutting supply and maintenance costs. STI-H250™ dual-row tracker includes backtracking mode to avoid shadowing between adjacent rows and stow function to protect the tracker in extreme wind conditions. For cleaning, vehicles can pass between trackers and each row can be placed in a different position.
