Maintain your Solar System

Our 'Living with Solar' weekend course is for enthusiasts and people who have (or intend to have) a home renewable energy system. The course covers a broad range of topics including basic understanding of the main components, troubleshooting and routine maintenance of an off-grid power system.

Understanding the relationship between amps, volts and watts will allow students to quantify their power usage, power availability, and to make informed decisions concerning appropriate lights and appliances.

Course Date & Time

Next Living with Solar workshop TBA.

We are Open for Business

Rainbow Power Company would like to assure our customers that we are trading (not quite as normal). System designers are working from home and can customise a quote for you (free of charge) over the phone and online. We are still dispatching and posting items, with safety precautions in place. You can still order online or over the phone, and pick up items from RPC (our show room is closed however, and appointments must be made to pick up orders). We are still doing site inspections, keeping the recommended social distancing.
