The Consortium for Solar Lighting (CSL) was formed under the Connecticut Revised Nonstock Corporation Act with the Office of the Connecticut Secretary of State. The mission of CSL and its members is simple -- accelerate the adoption of reliable solar street, roadway, pathway, parking lot and other related lighting technologies through the development of universal product standards.
The standards will be intended to address the growing demand by consumers for a fair and comprehensive "best practices" evaluation of commercial-scale off-grid lighting solutions. A diverse group of manufacturers of off-grid, outdoor solar lighting systems and related components will make up the bulk of CSL membership. Critically, non-manufacturer stakeholder organizations including academic researchers whose work or background would contribute an independent perspective to the process of standards development are regarded as valued members. Other important stakeholders include various federal and state government agencies as well as industry, public interest groups that advocate for the expanded use of solar energy. Membership is also extended to organizations that primarily serve CSL members including traditional electrical standards organizations. At the discretion of the CSL executive director individual memberships may be granted.
