We are delighted to announce our launch in the USA with an office opening in Garland, Houston, Texas, USA, with immediate effect.

Our new US office based at our parent company, Hill & Smith, Texas, will be headed up by Ben Odell, Business Development Lead, Prolectric USA. Our operation will focus primarily on the distribution of our market leading ‘Smart’ tower lights and hybrid generators.

As a solar-first business, we manufacturer sustainable solar lighting and solar hybrid power generators, serving a wide range of industries from construction, housebuilding and rail to major infrastructure. We lead the way in smart, clean, renewable technology, and are focussed on setting new engineering standards in AI and advanced telematics software, as part of its award-winning solar lighting and power technology product portfolio.

Rachel Preen, Managing Director, Prolectric, said: “The US market for solar is extremely buoyant. With expected growth in new solar capacity, Texas has tremendous potential for us. We warmly welcome Ben Odell, our business development lead in the US, to Prolectric. His wealth of experience in the construction sector is perfectly placed to support businesses looking to save on their fleet running costs and transition away from diesel to solar power. This market opportunity provides a natural progression for us to scale the business, building on our rapid UK growth ambition, Prolectric’s robust solar credentials, award-winning product standards for British engineering and CSR.”

Our solar technology provides a practical way for businesses to achieve their carbon-reduction commitments, enabling the simple switch from fossil-fuelled and mains powered systems, with a comprehensive range of direct like-for-like diesel replacements. Since launching our first award-winning solar lighting tower in 2016, we have saved over 30,000 tons of CO2e (equivalent to emissions from the annual energy use of approximately 2,700 homes) and reduced diesel usage by more than 2.6 million gallons. In the UK to date, this represents a customer saving of over $3 million.

We are committed to providing practical and commercially viable ways for businesses to move away from fossil fuels to reduce carbon emissions, achieve their net zero goals and save money.
