High-Efficiency LED Retrofitting Services
Older lighting technologies use more energy and need more frequent replacement. An LED retrofit will save your business money on power bills and reduce maintenance costs while delivering better quality light.

A normal light pole only works at night – but our customizable renewable lighting solutions deliver value all day long. Our lighting solutions are self-contained, run on clean solar or wind power, can feature custom branded banners, WiFi, security cameras, bench seating, and USB-charging ports.
Commercial Solar PV System Installation
Take advantage of solar power generation without the risk of a leaking roof or the headaches of bureaucratic paperwork. We provide non-penetrative installation on flat and low slope roofs, pre- and post-installation roof inspections, ground mount installations, and handle all of the permitting and interconnection paperwork.
Commercial Solar Operation & Maintenance Plans
To keep your solar PV system running its best it will need regular maintenance and the occasional repair. Our real-time monitoring service takes the guesswork out of maintenance. When we detect problems we’ll send a technician to troubleshoot and repair the issue before it interrupts your operations. If you have an existing solar PV system which needs repair, our expert technicians can get your system back up and running, even if it was installed by a third party.

About Colite Technologies
Colite Technologies began within Colite International’s research and development division as an idea for helping companies power their signage with renewable energy. The project then evolved into its own organization helping companies improve their energy efficiency, transition to renewable energy sources, and meet their sustainability goals. However, we still maintain strong ties with Colite International and both companies are able to leverage each other’s strengths.
We are based in Columbia, South Carolina and proudly employ an in-house team of engineers. Our portfolio of sustainable energy solutions include LED retrofits, renewable lighting systems, solar PV installations, and long-term maintenance plans for solar systems.
