USA Wire & Cable Inc. (USAWC) has opened a new distribution center in California's Imperial Valley region in order to serve the growing utility-scale solar market in the Southwest.
By stocking an extensive PV cable inventory and providing just-in-time service, USAWC aims to reduce lead times and inventory costs for projects throughout the region.
‘With more than 40 utility-scale projects within a same-day shipping radius, and more being added, we've expanded our inventory availability,’ explains Hugh Robertson, vice president of solar at USAWC.
‘Initially, we are focusing on DC cable components, PV wiring, connectors, feeder cable and ground wiring, as well as support tools,’ he adds. ‘In the future, we may add medium-voltage cables, combiner boxes and bulk electrical material.’
