Offgrid energy specialists and Executive Hire Show exhibitors par excellence, Prolectric, has just announced the launch of its first transatlantic business, with an office opening in Garland, Texas.

The new US office is based at Prolectric’s parent company, Hill & Smith in Texas, and it will be headed up by Prolectric USA Business Development Lead, Ben Odell. The new operation will focus on the distribution of Prolectric’s ‘smart’ tower lights and hybrid generators.

“The US market for solar is extremely buoyant. With expected growth in new solar capacity, Texas has tremendous potential for us," explained Prolectric Managing Director, Rachel Preen.

"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.”

Prolectric’s solar technology provides a way for businesses to achieve their carbon-reduction commitments. Since launching the solar lighting tower in 2016, the company claims to have saved over 30,000 tonnes of CO2e  and reduced diesel usage by more than 2.6 million gallons. 

Those are certainly some convincing numbers. Find out more about the full Prolectric range at
