Programmable Hybrid Solar Light Towers


Download Brochure

Wanco’s Hybrid Solar Light Tower adds backup power to the extensive list of features provided by our solar-only light towers. A diesel engine charges the batteries when needed. Ultra-bright LED lights can be individually programmed for automatic operation and desired brightness from 10 to 100 percent. A 7‑inch full-color touchscreen controller enables highly customizable autonomous operation and makes manual operation easy.

Power Efficient

All of Wanco’s Programmable Solar Light Towers feature unprecedented power-efficiency that ensures longer runtimes with the brightest illumination and the least energy consumption. Batteries provide power and an automated solar-based charging system keeps the batteries charged. The system’s state-of-the-art Smart MPPT controller, together with monocrystalline half-cut cell solar panels, provides up to 30% more charging capacity, maximizing every available amp for optimal charging efficiency.

Hybrid Backup Power

For seasons and locations with limited sunlight, the hybrid model adds reliable diesel backup power. The light tower’s diesel engine charges the batteries when solar alone cannot keep up with demand. The engine runs automatically to keep the batteries fully charged. Environmental features include sound-attenuated enclosure and exhaust, and integrated fluid containment.

Wanco’s Deluxe Remote Power Management system is included for online access to power monitoring and control. A Bluetooth app and touchscreen controller provide local power management.


Exceptional programmability provides you with the flexibility and versatility of fully automated operation or manual control. You can press a button to turn all the lights on or off at once, or set one or more programs to run automatically. Program the lights to turn on and off individually or all together. Auto-on and -off settings include time of day, ambient light and other options. For even greater autonomy, automatic operation can be scheduled for specific days or calendar dates.


Four high-efficiency, high-output, dimmable light fixtures top the 24-foot telescoping tower. The tower rotates nearly 360 degrees without lowering the lights, which operate at any height. The lights can be individually aimed without the use of tools, and they stay where you point them. The tower remains vertical at all times, and the trailer’s low center of gravity keeps the tower stable.
