Peter Pedals Obituary, Death – In Loving Memory of Peter “Pedals” van der Wyk Dear Rainbow Power Family and Friends, It is with heavy hearts that we come together to remember and celebrate the life of our beloved founder, Peter “Pedals” van der Wyk. His passing leaves a void that can never be filled, but his legacy will forever be a beacon of inspiration and innovation for all of us.
Peter, affectionately known as “Pedals,” was a true pioneer in the Renewable Energy Industry. His unwavering passion for harnessing the power of nature was a driving force in his life. From his pedal-powered juicer, which garnered national attention on television shows like “That’s Incredible” and “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” in the early ’80s, to the co-founding of Rainbow Power Company with two friends in the late ’80s, Peter’s dedication to renewable energy was a constant theme.
Rainbow Power Company, his “dream child,” became a beacon of innovation and sustainability in the industry, thanks to Peter’s visionary leadership. Long before the establishment of organizations like the Clean Energy Council and TAFE-approved solar courses, Peter played a pivotal role in creating the first Off-Grid Solar accreditation. His contributions paved the way for many industry leaders to take their first steps into the world of renewable energy.
Even after officially retiring a few years ago, Peter’s passion for renewable energy remained undiminished. He continued to visit Rainbow Power Company regularly, sharing his wisdom and gathering components for his latest projects. His dedication and enthusiasm were infectious, leaving a lasting impact on all of us.
As we mourn the loss of our dear founder, let us also celebrate the remarkable life he led. Peter’s ingenuity, pioneering spirit, and commitment to a sustainable future will continue to inspire generations to come.
We extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time. Peter “Pedals” van der Wyk may be gone, but his legacy will forever shine brightly in our hearts and in the work we do at Rainbow Power Company.
Rest in eternal peace, dear Pedals. You will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
With heartfelt sympathy,
[Your Name] [Your Position] Rainbow Power Family
