SolCool solar powered air conditioner’s unit can save up to 80% of the energy consumption of a typical air conditioner. The unit can be easily installed in the attic, outside or garage and can accept a number of power sources such as direct DC power, generator and by solar grid. The unit can operate during power outages (great bonus for hot nights) and has been marked as a Energy Star Partner by the U.S. government.
This can not only save you money in the long run but also reduce each home’s carbon ‘footprint’. If you check out their website, CBS recently did a story on this company’s new solar product.
