Victoria, BC – First Light Technologies is pleased to announce the launch a significantly improved version of its popular IPL series architectural solar area light. The IPL series now incorporates a number of innovative new features and technological improvements to enhance reliability, lighting performance and give customers more flexibility.

“The IPL has been a unique and very popular solar powered luminaire for lighting a variety of outdoor pedestrian scale applications because of its architectural and integrated design.  Most importantly, it looks and functions like a regular outdoor lighting product that would traditionally be wired into the electrical grid ,” said First Light CEO Sean Bourquin. “We wanted to build on that success with features that further improve performance for our customers.”

Among the new features added to the IPL include more lighting profile options including real-time based lighting profiles and an improvement in light output. The lights can now also have their lighting profiles adjusted wirelessly at any time through First Light’s iOS app and motion sensing capabilities that allow the lights to shine at their brightest when needed most by users.

“We want solar lighting to be the standard for lighting commercial outdoor areas because it’s simpler, more sustainable and much more cost-effective to install,” said Bourquin. “That’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our lights’ efficiency and performance.”

This upgrade adds to the existing advantages customers gain when opting for solar lighting – no ongoing carbon emissions, immune to power outages and significantly lower install costs. The updated IPL solar area light is part of broader effort by First Light to deliver better, simpler solar lighting.
