Coolerado Makes Solar Powered Air Conditioning a Reality
Video Guides Solar Contractors in Boosting Solar Power Generation
RETECH 2009 — LAS VEGAS, Nevada and DENVER, Colorado —
2009 — Coolerado Corporation today announced that it has revealed its
revolutionary design for solar powered air conditioning systems to the general
public through an online video that documents the unique system at www.coolerado.com/?page_id=111.
Targeting solar contractors, the video demonstrates the simplicity of
simultaneously cooling air, while boosting solar power generation. Using
computer animation, the video illustrates how to incorporate the affordable system into different
commercial and residential building types.
Coolerado is exhibiting its solar powered air conditioning
systems this week at RETECH 2009,
running February 25-27 at the Las
Center, in Hall N1, booth #510.
“Coolerado chose to disclose the design so that wide scale
deployment of the systems can occur,” said Rick
Gillan, executive vice president of Coolerado. “We could have
limited availability through exclusive licenses, but have chosen a broader
approach that allows us to focus on our core air conditioning business.”
Any solar contractor
can work with air conditioning installers in the Coolerado distribution network
to pair the air conditioner with a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. Only a few PV
panels are needed to power Coolerado air conditioners, so most systems have
plenty of excess power available for other electric
demonstrator the company shows in the video is set up to display real time,
side-by-side comparisons of the added power generation created by the system.
“The system definitively shows how power production is increased by more than 15
percent by employing the innovative approach. Industry experts who have seen the
system are also amazed at the tiny amount of power being drawn by the air
conditioner,” Gillan said.
There is significant
world wide demand for affordable off-grid and grid tied solar powered air
conditioners, and Coolerado’s system works with either. The off-grid system
documented in the video uses a Coolerado air conditioner capable of cooling
3,000 square feet of space with only 600 watts of power, so only four PV panels
are needed to power it.
