BFL Series

Solar LED Street & Parking Lot Light

Why Choose the BFL


The BFL Series is our brightest light to date.

Every detail has been purposefully designed to streamline the customer experience from simple install through to reliable lighting performance.

The self-contained, unobtrusive solar engine integrates its solar power, battery and adaptive control capabilities into a compact and simple form. This, combined with an efficient LED fixture, makes the BFL Series an excellent fit where high-performance, full cutoff and cost effective lighting is required.

The BFL Series incorporates First Light’s innovative Solar Lighting Controller (SLC) which allows it to predicatively adapt to surroundings, providing performance and reliability unavailable in other solar lighting products.

Photometric Diagrams


Our optical system efficiently focuses light where it’s needed. For the BFL, there are a number of standard lighting distributions to optimize performance for applications from local and streets to parks and parking lots.

All of these lighting distributions are full cutoff and dark sky approved.

Lighting Profiles


A lighting profile controls when a light is on and how bright it is through the night. All profiles are based on when the BFL detects dusk and dawn. The time when a light turns off or dims during the night can be set in two ways – the time elapsed from dusk or before dawn (a duration based lighting profile) or at a specific time according to a clock in the light (real-time based lighting profile).

Real-time lighting profiles allow you to comply with the Model Lighting Ordinance, dimming after curfew, or during periods of low pedestrian conflict.

Lighting profiles are field configurable with app.
