Prorehire supplies the award-winning range of Prolectric off-grid, sustainable solar lights, solar hybrid generators and solar CCTV exclusively to rental companies for rehire.

Our History

Prolectric introduced permanent solar-only street lights to the UK in 2011.  Today, with thousands of units installed nationally - they are market leaders.

In 2014, Prolectric merged with Forgen Renewables, a large-scale solar PV installation company serving social housing landlords and the commercial sector.  Together, their combined knowledge and expertise supported the early adoption of solar across the UK.  However, the effective demise of the feed-in tariff in 2016 presented challenges.  As a result, the business had to change course rapidly and so began to refocus on its solar-powered lighting range.


With the vision to accelerate the change to a more sustainable future, the business continued to evolve, finding innovative ways to maximise the use of solar technology.  In collaboration with customers across construction, rail and infrastructure, it developed further environmentally friendly off-grid lighting, power and security CCTV products.

Investment in innovation

In 2021, Prolectric was awarded the UK's most prestigious business accolade, the Queen's Award for Enterprise, in the Sustainable Development category.   The award recognises Prolectric's excellence in developing and bringing smart, sustainable technology to key industries across the UK.

Prolectric continues investing heavily in R&D,  setting new standards for off-grid solar technologies.

Trusted technology

In March 2021, Prolectric became part of Hill & Smith Holdings PLC, a FTSE 250, £1Bn international group providing sustainable infrastructure and safe transport solutions through innovation.  Prolectric operates as a standalone business unit within the Hill and Smith 'Roads and Security' portfolio.

In 2023, we established Prorehire, the specialist rehire division of Prolectric, supporting the rental industry in responding to the ever-increasing demand for sustainable off-grid lighting, power and security products.
