AC/DC Hybrid Solar Air Conditioner
This is a relatively new technology that uses a specially designed air conditioner condenser unit that runs from both AC power and DC Power.
With two options in either 12000 BTU or 18000 BTU units, this solar air conditioner system is a more affordable option than an independent off grid system.
This Solar air conditioner brings the best of both worlds, offering energy free usage during the day as it runs from the solar panels and then using power only at night.
This option also lends itself to much lower installation costs as it is only a standard Air Conditioner installation and a simple solar panel installation.
The hybrid solar air conditioner has a built in smart controller that will automatically switch between the Solar DC system and the AC system depending on where the power availability is.
Or, if you are the handyman type , you could do most of the solar side yourself.
The hybrid Solar Air conditioner – how it works
Using an innovative and simple system, the hybrid unit can draw power directly from the solar panel array to drive the DC power supply and essentially run the unit during the day.
This uses no power at all from the grid and makes this solar air conditioner a GREAT option for businesses and home based businesses who operate during the day.
The solar panel ware wired directly to the unit with no need for controllers or batteries.
Generating enough power from the UV during the day, allows the unit to run cost free and silent while keeping the space cool throughout the heat.
At night, if the system is needed, it will switch over to the AC supply.
Hybrid Solar Air conditioner – where to get one.
The good news is that these are available from Saving Energy using the form below.
Then launch price on these units would be R42990-00 excl VAT for the 12000 BTU unit and R48990-00 for the 18000 BTU unit.
12000 BTU would work for rooms up to 25sqm and the 18000 BTU unit for rooms up to 36sqm.
The price includes the air con unit, the solar panels and components needed to connect and install it.
This price does not include VAT or installation but for Gauteng, the installation is about R 5290 excl VAT.
If the installation is outside Gauteng, a quote will be provided.
Fill in the form below and get off grid and staying cool this summer!
As energy costs and the heat continue to climb, the hybrid solar air conditioner offers relief from both!
