Installation | Off-Grid Solar Street Light

The off-grid public lighting system is supplied as a DIY kit. Australian regulations do not require a licensed electrician for 12V DC wiring. Rainbow Power Company still recommends that you get a professional to install your street light (find an accredited solar installer).

You may also need development approval (DA) prior to installation - please check with your local council. And remember - whatever you do - dial before you dig.

One Hole, One Pole - Job's Done

Unless you have earth moving machinery there's a bit of hard yakka first:
  1. Dig a hole 450mm in diameter x 1.1 metres deep
The rest is easy as you can see in the slide show (click image)
refill hole
place battery in base
attach pole
lift pole
tighten bolts
Street Light is up
  1. Place base in hole and back fill with concrete
  2. Place the battery in the base
  3. Fix the pole onto one side of the base, assemble and test operation
  4. Place the pole into the upright position
  5. Tighten up all four bolts on the base of the light
  6. The finished job, ready to go to work

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.
