About Us

With over 80 years of combined experience in product management, design engineering with solar and LED technologies, and a desire to make a difference. The leadership team at First Light Technologies (FLT) saw an opportunity to create solar powered LED lighting products that were cost effective, easy to install, pleasant to look at, and above all, reliable.

FLT was created with a mission to make our innovative solar powered bollards and luminaires the first choice for qualified applications. FLT has sold thousands of solar light fixtures, with installations from Seattle to Saudi Arabia.

Every light we produce is designed and built in our manufacturing facility located in Victoria, Canada. We source materials locally to ensure quality, and to participate in the local economies that have made us successful. We collaborate closely with our partners to create value through efficient design and responsible sourcing. Innovation is at the core of all that we do at FLT. We believe that the solar lighting industry is poised for tremendous growth and the innovations that we bring to market today, will have a measurable impact on climate change tomorrow. Our entire team is working every day to leave the world better than we found it.
