Schneider Launches Solar-Ready Square D Combination Service Entrance Device

Schneider Electric previewed the new Square D Combination Service Entry Device (CSED) at the 2022 NECA Convention and Show at booth #2502. Schneider developed this CSED to be code compliant of the new 2020 NEC standards, to offer new safety features, a compact design and, most importantly for us, to be ready for solar energy.

The new CSED, slated for launch in December, combines meter tapping and service disconnection in a single box. It also incorporates Wiser Energy technology, giving homeowners more control over their changing energy needs.

“Electrical codes change, but safety remains paramount for us in the products we offer and for electrical contractors in the products they install,” said Richard Korthauer, senior vice president, Schneider Electric Home & Distribution US. . “By bringing this state-of-the-art combination service entry device to market, we are supporting electrical contractors by simplifying NEC 2020 compliance and streamlining solar installation in anticipation of the expected increase in demand resulting from the law. on reducing inflation.

Square D CSED Features:

  • Outdoor disconnect, surge, and GFI protection required by NEC 2020
  • Plug-on Neutral interior fits perfectly with Plug-on Neutral circuit breakers and surge protection devices
  • Standardized solar capacity for customers looking for a more environmental approach
  • Newly added four space/eight circuit option
  • Compact footprint that takes up less space, creating a seamless, cleaner installation
  • Three-inch (3″) utility power conduit to allow for greater wiring maneuverability (as required by some utilities)

With Wiser Energy, customers have the ability to monitor how their energy is being used down to the device level. Providing real-time information on energy usage makes it easy for homeowners to spot inefficiencies, set energy goals, reduce waste, and track savings, maximizing their electricity needs and wants.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton of video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power forward! — a collaboration with BayWa re to discuss high-level industry topics as well as best practices/trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer side project is Field — in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technologies and ideas so you don’t have to. We discuss everything from fixing a trackless residential deck and financing home solar power to stacking utility-scale energy storage value and new piloted home solar and storage microgrids. by public services.
