Entry DescriptionThe BFL Series is solar street and area lighting reimagined. Every aspect of the BFL was designed with usability, performance, and simplicity in mind.
Featuring a design which integrates the solar module and lithium battery seamlessly within the solar engine, the BFL is the most compact product of its type. It’s compact and lightweight form-factor reduces wind-load and costly pole and foundation design, making it the most cost-effective product of its type on the market. It features a door-holding safety latch, simplified battery change and keyed and locked connectors to streamline the install process. The two-tone powder coat and anodized finish provides a striking aesthetic to the overall design.
The BFL utilizes autonomous self-learning technology to optimize lighting performance for all conditions and deliver unrivaled reliability. It also features a Dark Sky compliant LED light fixture that ensures full illumination while minimizing light pollution and trespass.
This completely off grid light, requiring no wiring or electricity costs and offers unparalleled performance reliability and simplicity. There is no easier, cost effective or sustainable form of outdoor lighting.
