Renewable energy cables
We have supplied cables to many international wind and solar energy projects. Our product range contains wind turbine and solar cables. With our aluminium cables we can supply lightweight cables with the same durability as copper cables. DEP Power offers cables in the following product categories:
- Low voltage cables, with copper and aluminium conductors.
- Medium voltage cables, with copper and aluminium conductors.
- Assembled cables, complete with identification and tested.
Our cables are flexible and we even offer torsion resistant cables for the use in wind turbines. Furthermore, our product range include cables such as XPLE-cables, heat resistant cables and primary and secondary distribution cables.
The renewable energy market, compared to other markets, is a young market. With many new development, this requires organisations to respond quickly, on an international level, to keep up. With our customer specific cables we respond to this need: we are able to engineer, test and manufacture cables within tight deadlines and required standards. This makes us your ideal partner.
Solar Cables & Wind Turbine Cables
Solar Cables and Wind Cable
DEP Power’s line of Solar Cables & Wind Farm Cables consists of WTTC rated Wind Farm Cables, Solar Cables, and Alpha’s EcoWire™, an environmentally friendly cable alternative to PVC hook-up wire. Designed as green energy cables, these solar cables, wind farm cables, and other environmentally friendly cable options are designed to perform to the highest standards in environmentally friendly cable applications.
- Solar Power Cable
- Wind Turbine Cable
Solar cables are part of our green energy cable inventory. Solar cables such as Photovoltaic Wire (PV Wire) and USE-2 Solar Cables are used as wiring for solar panels and photovoltaic arrays. Solar cables may also be used with underground service entrances and to connect solar cable service terminals. USE-2 solar cables are crush and impact resistant, but PV Wire has thicker insulation and jacketing, and is more sunlight, ozone, and UV resistant. PV Wire is also more flame resistant and more flexible at low temperatures than USE-2. PV Wire can be used in ungrounded or grounded photovoltaic arrays, but USE-2 Solar Cables may only be used in grounded solar cable arrays. USE-2 Solar Cables have been used for a long time, but PV wire is a relatively new addition to the world of solar cables. PV Wire first appeared in the 2008 NEC.
THHN wires are also sometimes used as solar cables in environmentally friendly cable applications. THHN is less expensive than other solar cables, but should never be used where USE-2 Solar Cables or Photovoltaic Wire are specified. Although it can be used in some of the same applications as solar cables, it doesn’t have the added construction strength of more specialized solar cables.
Wind Farm Cable
Wind farm cables are green energy cables used in wind turbine cable applications. All of DEP Power’s wind farm cables are rated WTTC cable. Wind farm cables are designed to endure challenging wind farm cable environments. Wind farm cables are flexible and easy to install. Wind farm cables are also resistant to oils, chemicals, fuels, solvents, and abrasion. As environmentally friendly cables, wind farm cables are recyclable.
Environmentally Friendly Cable
EcoWire™ is environmentally friendly cable that can replace typical PVC hook-up wire. The mPPE insulation is more durable, lighter and has a much smaller diameter than PVC because of its better dielectric strength.
EcoWire meets both RoHS and WEEE requirements. The mPPE is green friendly because it degrades over time and is recyclable. Ecowire contains no halogens or other hazardous materials, making it even more environmentally friendly cable. Ecowire also has a great operating temperature range and is flame resistant.

Project support and advice
We insist on helping you with selecting suitable cables and finding the best solution for your project. Most of the projects require paperwork on cable standards such as regulations and specifications. We work with these complex and extensive documents every day and are more than happy to convert this information into the right cable choices and best solutions. Please contact us for our project support and advice (free-of-costs).
