Solar/PV Industry Wire and Cable
Galaxy is a leading supplier of wire and cable to the solar and photovoltaic (PV) industry. The solar/PV industry is a rapidly growing industry and the need for both solar/PV wires and solar interconnect cables is growing with it. The solar/PV industry primarily relies on two types of wires. These wires are USE-2 (Underground Service Entrance rated for 90°C and wet applications) and UL 4703. USE-2 was the industry standard for quite some time, but as solar applications have grown in size the power generated required new products to handle increased size and voltage. The UL 4703 rated cable can handle over 1,000 volts.
