Austin, TX, 78744

Press release date: May 11, 2012

With dramatic growth in solar project development and aluminum production labor strikes leading to excessively long lead times for aluminum cable, USA Wire & Cable (USAWC) announces the immediate availability of Aluminum Photovoltaic Wire in sizes for DC Feeder Cable runs between combiner box and inverter station.

While most factories are quoting long lead times of 20 weeks or more, utility scale customers can keep projects on track, without delay, by accessing USAWC's PV 2KV Aluminum Direct Burial Cable in sizes 1/0AWG, 4/0AWG, 350KCMIL and 500KCMIL. All other sizes can be available in 4-6 weeks.

The cable is constructed with sunlight-resistant RHH/RHW-2 Cross-Linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation, and compact stranded 8030 aluminum alloy conductor. It is UL 4703 listed, Direct Burial, CT Rated, 90oC Wet or Dry and VW-1 flame test compliant. "Building up an extensive inventory of Aluminum DC Feeder Cable is the solution to the industry-wide problem of aluminum shortage and excessive lead times which delay projects," said Hugh Robertson, USAWC vice president, Solar Solutions. "We are removing risk and eliminating delay." USA Wire & Cable has created the USA SOLAR SOLUTIONS group to provide industry-leading solutions and service with the goal of lowering cost per watt for contractors, developers and owners. "In 2009, USAWC was the first to introduce 2000V PV Wire rated for direct burial," Robertson said. "In response to connector shortages in 2010, USAWC introduced the Amphenol H4 Solar Connector and is now the largest supplier in North America. In 2011, we introduced our innovative DC Cable Harness which is saving utility scale solar projects massive amounts of time and money. We're not just a master cable distributor. We are a partner who anticipates problems and provides solutions to our customers."
