Progress Solar Solutions™, LLC (manufacturer) is teaming with the McClelland Marketing (manufacturer’s representatives) to represent its popular line of portable Progress Solar™ and Progress Solar/Wind™ Light Towers. The McClelland team consists of 5 team members in the west north central region of the U.S.. McClelland’s’ team will represent the Progress Solar Light Towers and sale and service the national, regional and independent construction equipment rental companies and dealers in its region.

Progress Solar 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 McClelland team has operated in the West North Central region since 1983, and has earned a loyal customer base with industry knowledge and strong relationships established over the years. They have proven themselves with other great product lines and I am confident they will do the same with growing this exciting line of Progress Solar and Solar/Wind Light Towers with their equipment rental companies and dealers.”
