New Products

A new 'smarter' Plasmatronics regulator is about to be released. It has an LCD display which meters battery voltage; charge current and amp hours; daily maximum and minimum battery voltage and battery temperature. This data is kept for 32 days. It also has a built-in timer for street lighting, pumping applications etc. If you'd like more information, contact us with your FAX number or postal address and we'll send you a leaflet.

Small Fridges

I have been compiling some consumption data on 12V chest fridges (30 - 70 L). Those are based on manufacturers statements, however, no one is following the same standard so I'm reluctant to publish a list 'comparing' them. However, if you need some help in this regard for your system sizing, give me a call.

Solar Power Station

The big news this month which didn't seem to make the news was the installation of a 200KW solar farm for Energy Australia near Singleton. It is expected to reduce greenhouse emissions by 250 tonnes a year. The 3500 solar panels cover an area of 1.25 hectares. The project was financed through the Green Power scheme whereby some 5000 customers are paying a premium on their grid power bills. That's all for this month.

Cheers from Dave and all the RPC crew.

Dave Lambert (Director)
