Photovoltaics – Energy With Future
The demand for electricity from renewable energy sources has been increasing significantly for years - in order to meet this demand, the generation of electricity through photovoltaics is essential. In this process, energy from the sun's rays is converted into electrical energy in solar cells using the photoelectric effect. To make access the converted energy, solar cells are connected to modules and integrated into photovoltaic systems.
Photovoltaics now represent the second-largest share of renewable energy generation in Germany, directly behind wind power. In 2019, almost 30 million tons of carbon dioxide were saved. This makes photovoltaics a sustainable and environmentally friendly form of energy.
Important to photovoltaic systems is the safe and long-lasting cabling of the individual modules among each other as well as also the cabling of the elements with the inverter. Due to the occasional extreme weather conditions outdoors, strict requirements are placed on the cables. For the cabling of solar modules, HELUKABEL offers the SOLARFLEX brand of high-quality cables certified by TÜV. Thanks to special sheathing materials and insulating materials, they are not only flame retardant and halogen-free, but also resistant to ozone, UV, acids and alkalis, hydrolysis and ammonia. Even rodents don't stand a chance against this cable, because our SOLARFLEX cables are also available with rodent protection.
For the infrastructure cabling of solar parks, HELUKABEL has various ground and medium voltage cables available directly from stock. Our aluminum cables are a lighter and more cost-effective option.
