Hybrid Energy Solutions for Transport & Highways

SolGen is revolutionising the highways sector with our innovative off-grid power solutions, designed for a diverse range of highway and road construction or maintenance projects.

We deliver cost-effective and sustainable power, providing highway maintenance and temporary setups with access to clean, renewable energy for a fraction of the typical cost. Some of our clients have even reported average savings of up to £700 per week on their project’s energy costs.

At the core of our approach lies innovation. We’ve developed the most advanced solar hybrid technology available, offering both static and mobile solutions for purchase or rental. This ensures high performance and maximum efficiency for any highways project.


Why Choose Our Power Units?

Slash Emissions by 90%

Our generators seamlessly switch between diesel and hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel. This considerably reduces CO2 emissions, limiting other pollutants, such as nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulphur oxide (SOx), and other harmful pollutants commonly produced by highway maintenance operations.

Self-Contained Convenience

Our fully self-contained units integrate solar, battery storage, and a Stage V HVO generator, ensuring easy transportation between locations.

Reduced Reliance on Fossil Fuels

Traditional diesel generators are fuel-guzzlers and emit harmful pollutants. By adopting SolGen’s solutions, highway sites can optimise energy usage as needed, minimising environmental impact and operational costs simultaneously.

Renewable Power for Highways Projects

Almost every business within the transport sector is increasingly moving towards renewable energy solutions to drive down costs and emissions, to improve production and boost efficiency.

SolGen is at the forefront of this movement, and our pioneering systems seamlessly integrate solar power with efficient generators and batteries, to provide a reliable, cost-effective, and consistent energy source for off-grid roads and highway projects.

“Our collaboration with Solgen on a highways project near Gloucester was a game-changer. We tested their original prototype solar hybrid generator to power a suite of four cabins, including welfare, toilet, drying room, and office cabins. Despite limited space and the less-than-ideal orientation of the solar array, facing north and under the shadow of trees, SolGen’s innovation resulted in significant fuel and cost savings.Despite the limited space and the less-than-ideal orientation of the SolGen’s solar array (pointing east and under the shadow of trees), the site team observed significant fuel and cost savings.The integration of SolGen’s telemetry and portal system, coupled with expert advice from the SolGen engineering team, enabled us to program the system’s smart controls effectively. This optimization not only minimized on-site power consumption but also ensured that all the site’s power needs were fully met.What stood out most was the impressive performance of the SolGen units. SmartWatch is thoroughly impressed with both the product’s capabilities and the commitment of the SolGen team. This experience has solidified our confidence in SolGen’s innovative solutions and commitment to excellence.”

Effortless Installation

The vast highway network stretches across the UK, with many roads leading to remote locations without mains power. Our systems are designed for easy transport and installation, no matter how remote the location.

Sustainable Power Source

Our units primarily harness energy from solar panels or lithium-ion batteries, contributing to a complete, sustainable energy ecosystem.

Auto-Start Technology

The integrated generator automatically starts when battery levels drop or power demand exceeds the inverters capacity, minimising generator usage and the associated costs.

In-Depth Telemetry

Our advanced telemetry and smart controls enable remote monitoring of power usage, facilitating optimal energy consumption and renewable energy production. The bespoke reporting software aids cost savings by providing comprehensive insights into carbon production, power consumption, and generator usage.

Net Zero Operation

Our generators can run on diesel or HVO biofuel interchangeably as preferred but choosing HVO
biofuel gives net zero operation and reduces significantly CO₂ by 90%, plus reducing particulate,
Nox, Sox and and other emissions when compared to conventional diesel.
