SolarOne, one of the first names in solar street lighting in the United States, is now a Fonroche Lighting America brand. The acquisition positions SolarOne to bring Fonroche's innovative SmartLight 365 solar lighting technology to the USA.
Moneer Azzam and Graham Sayers founded SolarOne Solutions, Inc. in Massachusetts in 2004. In 2017, it acquired Inovus Solar, based in Boise, Idaho. This cemented SolarOne’s position as North America’s leading solar lighting company.
For over fifteen years across North America, end-users such as Municipalities, Native American Tribes, Military Bases, Federal Facilities, and Developers have installed thousands of SolarOne light points, providing better outcomes for their users than grid-tied lighting. SolarOne street lights improves resilience, drive lower maintenance expenses and avoid trenching and remediation costs.
Fonroche’s acquisition confirms its deep commitment to becoming the global leader in solar street lighting. Fonroche gains SolarOne’s brand recognition, 15 years of field, technical and market experience, and its nationwide network of channel partners.
