Designers and contractors do many things to protect the electrical cables and wiring systems in Solar PV installations. One option is a conduit; a hard, durable protective tubing that completely covers and protects wires and cables used in your electrical applications. It is necessary to do so because the electrical wires need protection against hazards i.e. atmospheric or physical, over a PV installation’s lifetime. In absence of a solar conduit, your outdoor wires could get wet, eventually, corrode and your PV system would likely suffer extensive and expensive damage.
There are many factors to take into consideration to correctly size and select the conduit material, from code-, job-, and customer-specific requirements, and making the right selection. In short, installing conduits is an art form.
When installing conduit, the wire is pulled through the conduit tubing and then typically passed through walls, under driveways, secured to the exterior, and even to the interior of a house. It must be installed or placed in a manner that it would remained protect from any external hazard and also should decrease the aesthetics of the building.
Rigid-steel conduit is the strongest type of conduit casing and sort of resembles a thick metal pipe. However, this also makes it the hardest conduit to bend or cut and sometimes requires a professional to do it right.
Staten Solar designs and builds systems for ground mounts, rooftops, and carports.
Our engineers and construction crews always excel, no matter how tough, or unusual the physical constraints are. From odd roofing materials to convoluted topography, from typical conduit designs to wet environments, there is no challenge these teams cannot overcome.
We believe the work we produce should be beautiful and it could be signed when completed. Talk to us for an aesthetic and solutions oriental custom solar PV system for your home or business.
