Victoria, BC – First Light Technologies has been ranked in the annual “Ready to Rocket” list for the fifth consecutive year in the Clean Tech category. The list profiles British Columbia technology companies that are best positioned for fast growth.

“We are pleased to be included for the 5th consecutive year,” said First Light CEO Sean Bourquin. “It really speaks to the strong execution of our team, the growth that we have achieved and to the still impressive opportunities we have for the future.”

The Ready to Rocket ranking comes as First Light has been recognized as a Top Growing Company by the Globe and Mail and the GROWTH 500 ranking. The company has seen strong demand for its line of self-contained solar bollards and luminaries that are uncompromising in their performance, simplicity and reliability. First Light recently launched its brightest light yet – the BFL-S Series Solar Street Light. The light provides exceptional lighting performance and sets a new standard for its compact design that provides the best value for lighting streets and parking lots.

With municipalities and organizations across North America looking for ways to make outdoor spaces safer and more accessible, First Light solar lighting has proven to be the most cost-effective choice for outdoor lighting.
