Solar thermal absorption air conditioning
Solar Powered Commercial 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.
