Victoria, BC – Rocket Builders has listed First Light Technologies in its 17th annual “Ready to Rocket” ranking. Ready to Rocket profiles British Columbia technology companies that are best positioned to capitalize on technology sector trends that will lead to fast growth. This is First Light’s 4th consecutive time included on the Clean Tech list.

“We’re honoured to be included with such an innovative group of companies,” said First Light CEO Sean Bourquin. “There is obviously a lot of potential not only in solar lighting but all the categories covered by Ready to Rocket.”

The Ready to Rocket ranking comes as First Light is preparing to open a new, larger manufacturing facility and its recent inclusion in the GROWTH 500 list of fastest growing Canadian companies with a five year growth rate of 1125%.

First Light has strong demand for its line of self-contained solar bollards and luminaries that offer significant install cost savings, excellent reliability and no ongoing carbon emissions.  With municipalities and organizations across North America looking for ways at making outdoor pedestrian spaces safer and more accessible, solar lighting is the most cost-effective choice.
