The Solar Beacon is anticipated to be a strong seller based on enthusiastic previous interest by The Flag Company’s clientele, already enchanted with the original Flagpole Beacon. The Solar Flagpole Beacon is the “natural next step,” according to Mike Lawrence, Vice President of The Flag Company, Inc.

“There were many inquires about a solar version when we launched the original Flagpole Beacon, but we just had to wait for technology to catch up,” explains Lawrence. “We knew what we needed to create the solar version, but the components were not readily available.”

With a solar panel installed either on the top or side of the flagpole, it can be charged within two hours, providing up to 18 straight hours of a six-watt, LED light (two bulbs), equaling the brightness of two 25-watt MR-halogen bulbs. LED bulbs are a cooler 3000K light source and last much longer than regular incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. (50,000 hr) The 20” X 18” panels start at 20 watts.

Existing Flagpole Beacons can be easily upgraded to a solar version. In addition to the energy saving features of the Solar Beacon, other noteworthy benefits of the new Solar Flagpole Beacon are that the solar panels charge on cloudy days, and have the same environmentally friendly features as the regular Flagpole Beacon: downlighting, no light trespass, and no light pollution. Contrary to traditional, outdated flagpole lighting methods, The Flag Company’s patented design utilizes a focused beam from the top of the pole down onto the flag, lighting specifically the flag. This results in a more energy-efficient and cost-efficient method for night lighting, as well as a more respectful and continual method of illumination.

Now with the solar version, Lawrence notes that their advanced technology control boards keep the system simple, with less to fail.

The Flag Company, Inc. has a specialized division to work with general contractors, architects, and government agencies for projects with flagpoles. Flagpoles from 20' to 70' are in stock in a variety of finishes. There are Flagpole Beacon models for internal and external halyard configurations, both for commercial applications and for residential use. Quotes are furnished on a per-job basis. The solar application is ideal for memorials, remote locations, and other situations where no power source is a readily available. The Flagpole Beacon also can be retrofitted to existing flagpoles for those who want to upgrade to a more environmentally friendly light source.
