Solar Air Conditioners

LG Electronics has released a solar-assisted air conditioner that uses the sun’s energy to power the AC via a solar panel attached to the top of the outdoor unit. The company claims their solar hybrid air conditioner is capable of reducing around 212kg of carbon over 10 years.

Another company, Lennox has developed a similar system called SunSource which integrates solar power by using a single solar panel which provides power to assist the fan motor that moves air across the outdoor coil. Lennox says their system can cut energy consumption for heating and cooling by half.
