Solar Lighting Overview

Ditch the dirty, noisy and costly diesel light towers and put SolSolutions Solar Lighting to work. SolSolutions Solar Lighting is clean, green, and silent.

Let the sun charge your solar panels and batteries during the day to light your location at night.

Our Solar Light Towers are available for rent within a 200-mile radius of Santa Rosa or for purchase anywhere in the US.

According to the Department of Energy, lighting accounts for 15% of global electricity consumption. And with rising utility rates, businesses and municipalities are always looking for ways to reduce their lighting costs:

  • Diesel generators are a popular option. But they’re expensive to refuel, noisy to operate, and release pollution.
  • Going solar is a cleaner alternative. But installing a full-sized PV system – just to power the lights – is often overkill.

Fortunately, there are simpler solutions that offer reliable illumination for a fraction of the cost and without the environmental downsides.

Introducing the Solar Light Tower – a standalone lighting system that draws all the energy it needs from the sun.

How Does the Solar Light Tower Work?

The Solar Light Tower is a mobile lighting solution equipped with high quality solar panels, energy-efficient LED flood lights, and in-built battery storage:

  • During the day, the PV panels convert sunshine into energy – which is stored in the batteries.
  • When the sun goes down, the batteries and LEDs take over – providing unrivaled illumination.

Each Solar LED Light Tower comes with a telescoping pole, which allows you to extend or contract the unit based on your lighting needs. And because this mobile solution is equipped with wheels, you can easily transport the Solar Light Tower anywhere illumination is required.

What Are the Benefits of the Solar Light Tower?

Below are just some of the reasons why customers choose the Solar Light Tower over diesel-based lighting solutions.

  • No Air Pollution – This self-contained lighting solution is a more sustainable alternative to traditional power generation. For example, a diesel light tower running for 6 hours emits 70 pounds of CO2 (in addition to other harmful toxins). By contrast, the Solar Light Tower doesn’t release any pollution or fumes.
  • Zero Noise Pollution – Due to its silent operation, the Solar LED Light Tower is ideal for situations where noise ordinances apply – from construction zones to residential neighborhoods to outdoor events.
  • Higher Savings – Whether you buy or rent, the Solar Light Tower is significantly cheaper than a diesel generator of similar capacity. But the savings don’t stop there. Whereas diesel generators need constant refueling and maintenance, the Solar Light Tower’s PV panels rely on free energy from the sun.

This explains why owning a unit comes with an average payback period of less than 3 years. And just as with our other off-grid PV solutions, the Solar Light Tower qualifies for a range of local, state, and federal incentives that can help shorten the payback period even more.

  • No Air Pollution – This self-contained lighting solution is a more sustainable alternative to traditional power generation. For example, a diesel light tower running for 6 hours emits 70 pounds of CO2 (in addition to other harmful toxins). By contrast, the Solar Light Tower doesn’t release any pollution or fumes.
  • Ultra-Portability – The Solar Light Tower’s mobile design allows you to take it with you on the go using any light-duty vehicle. This is in sharp contrast to rooftop PV solutions that can only power lights in the immediate vicinity.
  • Extreme Durability – The Solar Light Tower is built for all climates – thanks to its American-made design and commercial-grade materials. And because the LEDs, panels, and batteries have no moving parts, this rugged lighting solution suffers from less wear & tear than diesel generators do.

Common Use Cases for the Solar Light Tower

There are many different applications for this green lighting solution. But below are some of the most common use cases:

  • Construction – the Solar Light Tower’s mobility makes it an ideal fit for construction, mining, and drilling teams that frequently relocate from job to job. Powerful floodlights provide full illumination, allowing teams to work around the clock – without needing to start, stop, refuel, or repair as you do with diesel-powered alternatives. Moreover, the unit’s quiet operation makes it easier to comply with local noise ordinances.
  • Security – one of the easiest ways to prevent crime is to make sure your business or industrial park is well-lit at night. The Solar Light Tower is a set-it-and-forget-it solution that provides automatic illumination – with zero human intervention required.
  • Emergencies – the Solar Light Tower is a reliable technology that can help save lives following natural disasters, grid outages, auto accidents, crime scenes, and other emergencies.
  • Outdoor Events – from county fairs to evening concerts to sporting events, this temporary lighting solution delivers powerful illumination without making a sound.


Will the Light tower power anything other than the lighting?
No, the solar and batteries only power the lighting.

Most lighting solutions are grid-connected. And for off-grid illumination, diesel generators are fairly common. But for a growing number of homeowners and businesses, neither option is a good fit:

  • Utility power provides reliable lighting. But trenching, wiring, and permitting are expensive and time-consuming when trying to install illumination in a new parking lot.
  • Diesel generators are a pain to transport for off-grid applications. And they’re difficult to maintain, require constant refueling, and make a ton of noise.

Worse still, both energy technologies rely on fossil fuel, which is bad for human health and the environment.

But what if you could have portable, on-demand lighting that offers full illumination, zero air or noise pollution, and could be used anywhere?

Our solar LED outdoor lighting solutions deliver on that promise.

Why Choose Solar Power Lighting


Powered with photovoltaic (PV) panels, our technology offers a range of advantages over traditional lighting solutions, including:

  • Environmentally friendly: Solar power lighting runs on renewable energy that doesn’t emit CO2 or other greenhouse gases.
  • Financial savings: harnessing the sun’s energy means eliminating the lighting portion of your utility bill.
  • Tax credits: increase your savings even more by claiming commercial solar incentives at the federal, state, and local levels.
  • Infinite customization: our skilled engineers customize every aspect of your solar lighting solution to ensure it provides eco-friendly illumination year-round – no matter your budget.

Solar Power Lighting vs. Diesel

Our solar LED lighting solutions have specific advantages over diesel generators:

  • They run on clean sunshine – removing the need to lug around heavy diesel generators and canisters.
  • They have zero maintenance requirements – thanks to no moving parts and long-lasting LEDs.
  • They’re designed for all climates and situations – due to their high-quality aluminum, galvanized steel, and rugged American construction.

Solar Power Lighting vs. Utility Power


Below are reasons why grid customers increasingly prefer our solar lighting solutions:

  • They offer reliable year-round illumination – even during blackouts and grid outages.
  • There are no trenching requirements, allowing you to avoid paying $70/ft2 to run conduits underground.
  • Our solar lighting solutions are built for portability to provide you with full illumination wherever you need it most.
