Quick Cable Display Added to Renewable Energy Training Center

FRANKSVILLE, WI (May 29, 2012) Springtime, the season when people’s fancies turn to thoughts of renovation. 

With rising energy costs, those renovation thoughts often turn to solar, wind and other forms of renewable energy.

Anticipating a busy training season, the Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) in Custer, WI is readying their training facilities for new programs beginning in May. Quick Cable Corporation, a sustaining member of the MREA, recently visited the training facility to install a product display board to be used to explain the various connectors and components used in solar, wind and similar systems.

“These are the so-called balance-of-system components,” explained Dale Hegg, Quick Cable’s senior account manager for power generation products. “We created the board to help the trainers when they are reviewing solar cable and connectors, fuses, combiner boxes and all the other components that you might find in a grid-tied or off-grid systems.”

Quick Cable, headquartered in Franksville, WI, manufacturers high quality cast copper lugs terminals cables, and related components used in DC power installations, including battery-backup, solar, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric generation systems.

“MREA is really leading the way in training installers and contractors in systems and components and we’re happy to be working with them,” Dale said.
