Technically, yes. You can. Some light towers are essentially diesel generators with a lighting component. As such, some light towers can function as small generators. Light towers are mobile units with lighting fixtures mounted at the top of a tower. They’re used in construction sites or outdoor areas where temporary lighting is needed. Keep in mind that the mechanism of some light towers is dedicated solely to illumination. Such towers can’t be used as generators. On the other hand, some light towers are equipped with integrated generators to power the lights. In that case, the generator runs on fuel to generate enough power to operate the lights.
