Renewable energy applications call for cables that offer the highest levels of reliability and flexibility possible—not only to prevent downtime and disruption, but also because these systems are often in difficult-to-reach locations and can be hard to service. Wind turbines are often positioned in the middle of fields; photovoltaic panels are placed on high rooftops. If a cable stops working, then entire buildings, neighborhoods and communities can come to a standstill without power.
Major climate swings, severe hot and cold temperatures, ozone and UV radiation, moisture, oil: These cables are exposed to it all. Cabling solutions from Alpha Wire are made especially for the extreme rigors of solar, wind, smart grid, and electric vehicle applications to provide years of dependable and consistent service. We also offer small put-ups to give you exactly what you need for renewable energy applications—no excess cable you can’t or won’t use.
Alpha Wire’s cables, available in a range of gauges and conductor counts—and with specially formulated PVC jackets—provide years of reliable service because they’re built to perform without flaw in these types of environments. Hot temperatures, humidity and scorching rays will never prevent our cables from doing their job.
With superior durability, Alpha Wire cables can be used to support and charge electric and hybrid vehicles in the harshest and most unforgiving of environments. You can be confident that your charging stations will work whenever they’re needed—without frequent troubleshooting and maintenance due to cable failure.
Alpha Wire’s wind-rated cabling solutions are UL Listed for wind turbine, grid and substation environments. They combine quality, durability and performance while resisting oils, solvents, chemicals, abrasion and fuel. Our unique products reduce costly maintenance and repairs, support flexibility, are easy to install and can be deployed in tight spaces thanks to small footprints.
Alpha Wire cables support smart-grid architecture to enhance reliability and efficiency, ensure cybersecurity and help prevent outages, failures and damage to grid components. Because of their inherent dependability and reliability, our cables are able to monitor problems in all conditions so potential issues can be dealt with faster.
Designed to ensure excellent signal integrity, our cables are reliable and robust to resist interference, transmit across long distances, function despite temperature extremes and connect you with 24/7 access to the data you need.
