Solar Photovoltaic wire, also known as Solar PV wire, is a single-conductor wire used to connect the panels of a photovoltaic electric energy system. PV systems, or solar panels, are electric-power production systems that capture sunlight in order to produce electricity through an energy conversion process. Electricity is produced at the panel and wiring is needed to convey the electrical energy back to a collection point or piece of equipment. It is a specific kind of wire created for PV applications.
It is a single-conductor product that meets the requirements of UL 4703 Standard for Solar Photovoltaic Wire. The current construction requirements outlined by UL 4703 are as follows:
●Conductor size: 18 AWG through 2000 kcmil
●Conductor material: copper, copper-clad aluminum, aluminum
●Insulation: XLPE, EPR
●Voltage: 600 V, 1 kV, 2 kV
●Temperature rating: 90°C wet, 105°C dry, 125°C dry, and 150°C dry
●Optional direct burial rating
●Optional multi-ratings: USE-2, RHW-2
●Construction: Single conductor, non-armored
Solar Photovoltaic Wire sizes for panels are commonly constructed of copper conductors in 12 AWG, 10 AWG and 8 AWG sizes. Feeders sizes are commonly 1/0 AWG and larger, contain aluminum conductors and are rated 2 kV. PV wire 1 kV and 2 kV constructions often contain the same insulation thickness. 2 kV PV wires are a standard construction for systems that require cables rated over 600 V.
