Welcome to the
Consortium for Solar Lighting (CSL)

The CSL was established to form an industry-wide cooperative aimed at developing standards and guidelines for outdoor solar lighting that represent quality, reliability and performance.

About Outdoor Solar Lighting

This category is described as autonomous (independent of the electrical grid) light poles powered by solar energy. These systems collect solar energy during the day and store the power in batteries. The lights then turn on during the evening and run off battery power.

The technology utilizes a solar collector, a luminaire and batteries to store the energy created. Solar lighting products offer cost-effective, reliable alternatives to conventional lighting technology.
