Global Leader of Portable Solar Light Towers To Assist with Lighting and TV Production

  • Site Solar is the Global Leader in Portable Solar Power Generators and Light Towers
  • They will provide 20 solar powered light towers to the event to cover all lighting needs
  • The Site Solar towers will also provide remote power, critical to the Live Stream TV Production

The UTV World Championship announced today that Site Solar, the global leader in portable solar generators & light towers, will once again provide solar powered lighting for the 2021 UTVWC presented by Polaris RZR in beautiful Lake Havasu City, AZ October 13th-17th. The second year partnership comes as part of the continuing mission by race owners Matt and Josh Martelli to help offset the carbon footprint of the event and promote sustainable and responsible land stewardship. Site Solar will provide twenty of their flagship solar powered light towers which are capable of reducing CO2 emissions by 30 metric tons per unit, each year!

“We are thrilled to have Site Solar back and be working with them at Worlds this year,” commented UTV World Championship Co Owner, Josh Martelli. “We were blown away last year by how bright, efficient, and easy to use their solar light towers are. We didn’t have to worry about filling them up with messy and toxic diesel fuel, they are whisper quiet and they actually put out more light than most of the available diesel towers available in Arizona. Not only that we were able to charge our cameras and other equipment right off the units which helped us with our live stream production of the event. We can’t recommend them enough to anyone in construction, aviation, mining, law enforcement, emergency operations or tv/film production.”

The UTV World Championship will feature several nighttime activities this year including the AZ West UTV Festival in downtown Lake Havasu on McCulloch as well as two thrilling days of racing that will go into the night at Standard Wash. The Site Solar Portable Light Towers are an important tool in keeping the public and racers safe in the nighttime hours. Each tower contains solar panels totaling 1,440 watts charge, AGM maintenance-free batteries, and run LED lights 26 hours between full charges. Timers control the lights, reducing labor costs and allowing staff to focus on work assignments – increasing worksite safety and eliminating secondary containment worries. The solar trailer functions as a generator to operate tools or job trailer 110v items. A steel enclosure secures components, including a data logger with GPS, which allows real-time monitoring of the mobile unit.

“It’s really been awesome getting to know the UTV and off-road racing community and we’re very stoked to be back at the UTV World Championships this year again,” commented Jason Morehead, Director of Engineering & Manufacturing at Site Solar. “Our products are perfectly suited to providing light and power in the remote areas of the desert that these folks race in – and in fact many of them work in the industries we support – so there is some great symbiosis here. This technology has improved so much just in the past few years that the costs and benefits are really starting to eclipse traditional fuel based power and lighting systems. We encourage anyone with a business that needs remote power or lighting to get in touch with us!”
