Off Grid Systems - Solar Power Solutions

25 August 2010

Off-grid power systems have always been our speciality.
In the last years the sudden popularity of grid connect solar systems has far surpassed the amount of sales of stand alone systems.
Unlike a lot of the newcomers in the business we still develop and design the best off-grid, stand-alone power solutions for remote areas, black-out prevention, hard to reach areas and international locations where no power is available.

We continue to work with the best components for our stand-alone systems.
We use Trina Solar or Kyocera solar panels; these are the best, tested at the Alice Springs Desert Knowledge site.
We have a large range of batteries and after 25 years in the industry we know which one is best for your application.

Make an off-the-grid sale a smart sale.

Large savings can be made by making smart choices, and knowing which machines to run and when to run them. Much more information can be found in our solar system design FAQ.

Things to consider are your battery bank size, inverter, regulator, number of solar panels, charge rate and cable length.

We at Rainbow Power can help you design an off-grid system for you. Visit our off grid page

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.
