Choosing the proper enclosures and safety components is a key aspect to a renewable energy system that can protect itself and keep you safe! In this section you will find all the electrical modules and parts necessary to complete a safe and code compliant photovoltaic installation.

To learn more about these components, start with the articles in the Resources section of our website. Two of the most significant safety components of a renewable energy system are proper enclosures and overcurrent protection.


More Info on Enclosures, Electrical & Safety

Enclosures have many uses including a wiring combiner point for PV arrays, inverters, weather protection for overcurrent devices and load disconnection. Overcurrent devices and switch gear provide safe means to disconnect power. For more in-depth information on what safety components you will need for your particular installation, check the references below.

Enclosures, electrical components and safety can be overwhelming if you’re new to installing PV systems, so check this section carefully.
