Solar Lighting Isn’t Just The future.
As one of the best solar street light manufacturers in the world, we’re passionate about the potential of solar lighting. Solar powered street lighting makes a real difference in the world - not just by harnessing the power of the sun, but by improving lives.
Gains in LED efficacy, solar panel output and battery technology make solar power the right answer for outdoor lighting... right now. Because of these improvements, commercial solar lighting systems are now ideal for commercial properties, parking lots, community residential streets, highways, and multi-use paths.
We take solar lighting further
We're making advanced solar street lighting available to more people and places, so they can see their world in a whole new light. Some of those places are hot and getting hotter, while others get so cold that they cripple our competitor's batteries. Thanks to Fonroche's battery research, our systems take on all kinds of climates. Every lighting system we sell is validated by an energy study specific to your project location.
Providing public lighting isn't like lighting your patio. Our product development team targets the needs of local governments, businesses, and schools. Reliability, durability, and connectivity are at the core of our solar street lighting product design and manufacturing processes.
Fonroche solar lighting has some of the brightest LED fixtures in the solar street lighting industry, but bright light isn't the whole story. We provide options that comply with dark-sky, local ordinances, and IES light guidelines. For communities concerned about blue light and circadian rhythms, we offer shielding and warmer color temperatures.
Because over 150,000 SmartLights are successfully deployed world-wide, we have the strength and scale to back our warranties and provide parts and service in the future.

We know your needs—and we have your solution
Our Design Process
Our design process will begin with a clear understanding of your project location and requirements.
Then we'll complete an analysis of 10 years of solar data for the local area. We use the PVsyst software suite and Meteonorm historical time series irradiation data to calculate the real-world operating conditions — orientation and tilt angle of the panel, shadow, etc. — and external parameters, such as direct and diffuse irradiation, temperature and the solar calendar.
Finally, we use this information to complete simulations with our SmartLight configurations. We select the best option to meet your needs, balancing cost and performance.
