“Electric 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 cutting-edge Combination Service Entrance Device to market, we are supporting electrical contractors by simplifying NEC 2020 compliance and by streamlining solar installation in preparation for the expected increase in demand resulting from the Inflation Reduction Act.”
The new CSED is solar-ready and designed to accommodate Wiser™ Energy technology, giving homeowners more control of their evolving energy needs. With Wiser Energy, customers are afforded the opportunity to monitor how their energy is being used down to the device level. Providing real-time energy usage insight allows homeowners to easily spot inefficiencies, set energy goals, reduce waste, and track savings—ultimately maximizing their electrical needs and desires.
