Progress Solar Solutions™, LLC (manufacturer) is teaming with the Cardinal Sales Team (manufacturer’s representatives) to represent its rapidly growing line of portable Progress Solar™ Light Towers. The Cardinal Sales team consists of 10 representatives in the north east region of the U.S. (ME, VT, NH, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA and Washington D.C.). Cardinal Sales’ team focus will be to represent the solar light towers and sale and service the national, regional and independent construction equipment rental companies and dealers in its area of coverage.

Progress Solar Solutions manufactures a complete product range of six portable, Solar and Wind powered LED outdoor lighting systems. This Progress Solar light plants will work in every region of the U.S. The company has recently expanded its manufacturing capabilities and produces in multiple facilities. Progress Solar is currently an approved or preferred vendor for most of the top Equipment Rental Companies in the U.S. and has units in the U.S. Department of Defense. The Progress Solar Light Tower resembles a traditional portable diesel light tower but is powered 100% by free renewable energy instead of diesel fuel.

The Progress SolarTM Light Towers and Progress Solar/Wind™ Light Towers are made in the U.S. (patents pending) and operate independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid eliminating 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 as well as with additional power on cloudy days and at night through an (optional) wind generator housed above the LED flood lights. And for redundancy and as a backup, the large battery banks that store numerous days of lighting can always be charged via an onboard dual-bank AC power charger if ever needed.

The Progress Solar Series of Light Towers are rugged, mobile light 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 33’ telescoping mast; four (4) solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a long-life Power Module with either flooded or 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 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 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.

Dan Robertson, a partner for Progress Solar Solutions, commented, “The Cardinal Sales team has operated in the Northeast region for over two decades, is proven and has earned both the respect and business of U.S. equipment rental companies at corporate, regional and branch levels for the area they serve. I trust they will do a great job in growing Progress Solar Light Tower sales.” Patrick Devitto, the principal of Cardinal Sales, commented, “Cardinal Sales is always excited when we take on a product that is at the cutting edge in construction equipment technology. I see Progress Solar light towers as the future for portable lighting in our industry”.
