BHC Cable Assemblies Accelerates the Transition to Sustainable Solar Energy

ST. LOUIS, MO – February 22, 2022 – BHC Cable Assemblies, Inc. (“BHC”), a subsidiary of Electrical Components International, Inc. (“ECI”), provides a full range of power and signal electrical distribution systems, and also has a special focus on the renewable energy market, specifically solar energy systems.

Solar energy capacity in the US has grown by 300x since 20081 and the cost of the solar panels has dropped by over 70%. Increasing efficiency in energy generation, storage, and connection systems to the main power grid are becoming more seamless with software advances and the introduction of AI. 

By 2030, solar energy capacity in the US is projected to more than triple, to over 324GW, or enough to power 40% of the homes2 in the US.

To support this growing market, BHC provides electrical system solutions for photovoltaic inverters and solar power plants, including full wire harness solutions, control panels and power distribution boxes, full system integration and testing. 

In 2021 and in future years, BHC will deliver systems to support an increase in solar energy capacity by 5GW. This solar capacity could avoid an additional 3,550 tons3 of C02 in the atmosphere, also equivalent to the emissions from 2.7 million miles driven in a diesel-powered city bus.

BHC systems are accelerating our transition to sustainable solar energy.
