Outdoor Cable Policy

Lighting Global Solar Home System Kit Testing Policy

The Lighting Global Quality Standards for Solar Home System Kits include a requirement that “Any outdoor cables must be outdoor-rated and UV-resistant.” This requirement goes beyond the Quality Standards for pico-products (off-grid products with peak power ratings less than 10 -15 W) and is based on the assumption that larger solar home system kits are expected to last for a longer period of time. Outdoor cables are defined as any cables intended to be used outdoors, such as the cable to the PV module or cables connecting components that are installed outdoors.
