Eland Cables Responds to Increased Solar Demand

As a leading international cable supplier, Eland Cables recognises the rapid development of the Solar Market. As such, they have procured the necessary cable range and industry expertise to offer solar installers a highly competitive solar package.

March 13, 2013

As the Government looks towards clean and renewable energy to combat climate change, solar energy has become an increasingly viable source for both domestic and commercial markets. Last year, Greg Barker – Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, announced in an interview with The Guardian that the Government plans to have four million homes powered by solar energy within the next eight years.

By pre-empting the increase in demand for solar systems in accordance with solar tariff amendments and the rapid rise in solar farms, Eland Cables has quickly established itself as a leading cable supplier to the solar market.
