A/C – Refrigeration – Dehumidification

Air Conditioning

Artic Solar’s XCPC collector technology may be used to provide the heat for Single or Double Effect Lithium Bromide absorption chillers or Ammonia/Water chillers for air-conditioning or refrigeration. Many of these solar cooling systems use natural gas as the back-up for a 24/7 operation. The low cost for natural gas makes solar cooling and refrigeration systems very cost effective with significant electricity savings and Demand Charge reductions.

Many options are available for solar cooling ranging from complete switch out of electric chillers to injecting a specific tonnage of solar air-conditioning into buildings with larger loads. The injected solar chilled water reduces the run time of electric chillers saving electricity and reducing demand or time of use rates during the daylight hours when electricity costs are typically higher.



Dehumidification using a desiccant wheel or liquid desiccant dehumidifier uses the high temperature heat from the XCPC solar array to dry out the moisture collected from the humid air stream. A simple and cost effective method to reduce indoor humidity for buildings, hospitals and agricultural hydroponic or aquaponics operations.

Advanced Solar Collector Technology

Unlike standard solar systems, the XCPC collects both direct and indirect sunlight, allowing usage across the globe. No moving parts and a dust-repellent coating mean minimal maintenance costs. Our low-profile roof-mounted systems blend in any environment.

We Make Solar COOL


  • Stand alone or inject chilled water into larger loads
  • Utilizes renewable energy to offset fossil fuels by 25% – 40%
  • 30% federal tax credit for all components, materials and installation labor*
  • Additional federal, state, local and utility grants/incentives are available *
  • Non-tracking design reduces O&M costs
  • Non-imaging optics allows for use of both direct and indirect sunlight

* USA only

Using our patented technology, industries as diverse as manufacturing, food processing (e.g., meat, dairy, processed food and beverages), municipal waste water treatment and oil & gas extraction will be able to shift peak load off the grid and reduce fuel consumption up to 70%.

Savings & Green House Gas Reductions


Example: 100KW System (100 XCPC’s)


Natural Gas = 14,800 therms saved /yr

174,000 lbs. of CO2 and 220 lbs. Nox


Electric = 300,000kWh saved per year

410,000 of CO2 and 1,498 lbs. Nox
