solar industry
Solar Industry
  • Solar Industry Market
    • Expected to increase to $127B by 2016
    • Driven by Renewable Energy acts
    • Federal and State funding
    • Rebates for extra energy consumption
    • Falling module and installation costs
    • ARRA certification

The Solar Industry Is Big, Global & Growing!


off grid solar pv systems
Off-Grid Solar PV Systems
  • Off-Grid PV systems
    • Stand alone system
    • Battery back up
    • Low voltage electricity generation 12, 24, or 48V
    • Typically provide DC power to smaller systems (lights, signs, etc)
    • “I don’t want to run power from the line side”
grid tied solar pv systems
Grid-Tied Solar PV Systems
  • Grid-Tied (on-grid) PV systems
    • System that is connected to a large independent grid (typically public) and feeds power into that grid
    • The electricity demand is met by the system and the excess is fed directly to the grid
    • Inverter is required to convert DC electricity to AC
    • Used in high voltage electricity generation – 600-1000V (buildings, residential rooftops, solar farms)
solar combiner solutions
Solar Combiner Solutions

cch solar product offering
CCH Solar Product Offering
  • Recombiners
    • Larger PV systems may require a need to combine the wires from several combiner boxes
    • Sometimes referred to as array or sub combiners
    • Consult factory
cch solar product offering1
CCH Solar Product Offering
  • Heavy Duty Disconnect Switches
    • 600VDC/ VAC

solar pass through box
Solar Pass Through Box
  • Used in residential applications
  • Provides low profile, cost effective solution
  • Transitions solar PV wire into traditional building wire
  • Designed for PV applications where over current protection is not necessary due to the low power rating of the PV string
  • Sometimes referred to as a “Transition Box”
  • Available in 3 and 4 circuit
solar pass through box1
Solar Pass Through Box

Fiberglass (N4X) enclosure provided as standard offering long dependable service in the most environmental conditions

Rated 600VDC continuous duty

Lightweight design offers easy mounting capabilities. Optional mounting feet are available for increased customer flexibility
