Hybrid technology is becoming the way forward in many industries. You have hybrid cars on the roads, and hybrid diggers on construction sites, lighting towers and generators. But why should you invest in hybrid technology? What do they offer you?
These are a couple of the questions that we have been asked when people enquire. We have two simple reasons: you’re saving money and you’re helping the environment.
Hybrid technology is more sophisticated than ever before. For lighting towers, they are longer-lasting, robust and reliable. If you’re looking for a long-lasting lighting tower for your project, such as road works, hybrid lighting towers are where you need to be looking.
With long-lasting batteries, and a fuel-efficient back-up engine, you have over 1000 hours of light – that’s from one lighting tower! This also means that less maintenance on the unit is required – allowing you to crack on with other work, reducing fuel-spill risks and reducing the risk of running out of light in the middle of the night!
Do check the fuel-gauge though… It will run out eventually!
With a combination of battery and solar and the back-up engine running on diesel – the general ratio of power is 80-90% electric, and 10-20% fuel. This gives you a fuel usage reduction of 88%, equating to a reduction of 94% in fuel costs! This is an incredible saving for any company, helping reach targets set and it does help reach government goals too!
A solar-hybrid lighting tower will reduce your fuel costs by 99%. In the summer, your unit will be using purely solar power when the sun as it’s height. However, when winter comes around, it is likely that the back-up engine will kick in! However, you’ll still be making massive savings due to the back-up engine being extremely fuel-efficient too.
LED lamps are used in all Trime lighting towers. They have incredible energy saving features, ensuring that your lighting tower maximises the savings available to you. LED lamps use less fuel, so even when your lighting tower is on fuel-mode, less fuel is being used!
So, what do hybrid lighting towers offer you?
- Reduction in fuel costs;
- Reduction in maintenance costs;
- Longer-lasting run-times;
- Emission reductions;
- Quality LED light.
