Hi, It's Paul here from Rainbow Power Company.
Today I'm here to talk to you about our medium off-grid power system. These systems are great
for Australian households who are looking to live off grid; if you bought a beautiful dream
block in the middle of the bush and you haven't got power to it, this system can help you
get 240 Volt power actually to that site. RPC has been around for over 30 years; we know
how important it is to actually design and supply really reliable off-grid power systems. When
you live a long way from the grid sometimes help can be a long way away, and therefore you want a
reliable system that's going to work faultlessly. Our kits are actually a little bit different to
a lot of the kits you'll find online whereby we actually supply all of the components you need
to actually successfully install your system. So I'll work my way through them; so
here we've got our solar panels.
A kit of this size will have typically between 6 to 18
solar panels. We supply over three different types of panels; so either Trina,. REC or Sunpower, all
these are high quality panels with good warranties in place. You'll get your solar frame so what we
do is our sales team actually help you to design a solar frame system that's actually going to suit
your roof line and customise that to your needs. From there as well you'll get a distribution
board and you also get a battery bank.
On the distribution board, how this works is that RPC
actually pre-wires all the major components that you'll actually need to get the electrical side
of the system actually working really well. So we do this in our manufacturing area which means
that we actually pre-wire but also pre-commission the system to work and actually test it
before it leaves our manufacturing facility. If I work through the components on here, you've
got your solar inverter, so solar's coming in here to the Sungrow solar inverter, it converts the
power from high voltage DC into 240 Volt AC. We've got our distribution board, our DC
distribution board with all the fusing and switching required so that you can actually
get power out of the system. We've also got our Multiplus inverter charger, this is actually the
heart of the system and it's what converts the 240 Volt and solar power, into 48 Volt battery
power. So it's actually charging the batteries during the day and then taking the power from
the batteries at night to supply your loads. On all of our systems as well, we've
also got a good monitoring system, this is called the colour control JX and what
it does it actually shows energy flows, so power moving in and out of the system, what your battery
state of charge and give you important information so you can live your lifestyle within the
amount of energy that's available from the sun. Great thing about this device as well is that
we can actually plug it into the internet so if we plug that into an internet and a router
that'll actually publish that data up to the web, so not only have you got access anywhere in the
world to how your solar system is going and the data about your solar system, but we're also there
and can actually watch and help advise you on any needs that you might have in regards to your
We keep on coming through, we've got some fusing, the power then comes down
to the battery bank. The battery bank, we actually use two types of batteries either Pylontech or BYD
LVS batteries. Rainbow's actually moved to using basically 100% lithium batteries on all
of our off grid systems these days, we're finding their performance is just phenomenal.
One thing about the RPC systems as well, is that because we're currently installing them
they actually meet all current Australian safety and insulation standards, so we spend a
lot of time actually making sure these are compliant with the latest safety standards
that are in place for installation, so although we might not be installing your system
we might be dispatching it and you'll be getting a local installer a local electrician to install
it for you, everything you need to actually meet those Australian standards is actually in the
kits, and so that makes it really really easy for that local installer to do their job.
I hope I covered everything that you need, if you've got any questions you can write in
the comments or you can give our team a call; we've got a team of off-grid sales people here,
and 50% of them actually live off grid, so we've got a lot of experience actually in helping
you to design a system and work through the important elements actually when you're setting
up and designing a system to live off grid.
Yeah thanks for the watching the video, if you want to
like and subscribe- really trying to get the word out here about this good work that we're doing,
so thanks heaps- we'll see you in the next video..
