Solar Air Conditioning Systems

By on May 16, 2013 in Energy Efficient Appliances | 0 comments

Air conditioning will be needed more and more in the future in many areas and in generall, nearly all current air conditioners and system (especially heat pumps) are too inefficient to run on off-grid systems and on grid in general. Planetary Systems now offers SEDNA-AIRE, solar air conditioning units which are similar to a Mitsubishi split-AC system but with an important catch. The heat to drive the refrigerant side comes not from compression, but from an exclusive solar thermal tube system, with the effect of the entire system using on a few amps AC or DC power.  Cost: Ranges from $3500 to $5500 Call for details Availability: 2 weeks Printable PDF: mult-split...

Off-grid Cabin Power Systems-Lower Pricing

By on Apr 30, 2013 in NEW FOR 2013-Compact Power Tower | 0 comments

  Our new Power Tower Package systems are very similar to our Off-grid system except that these systems utilize Outback GVX inverters which are not rated for sell-back operation, and feature Silicon battery banks for long term stand-alone operation. These systems also feature a backup generator control system and are recommended to use our new Auxiliary charge system-these inverters can be connected to any generator rated at least 3000 watts with a 30amp-120/240vac plug in. (4000-5000w recommended) These systems are expandable but are dedicated to remote cabin power when they might be charged daily but not be used for long periods of time and where batteries may get to freezing or below. Silicon Batteries are rated for this service and can operate in temperatures of -40F to 158F with no problem. AGM battery systems are also available and will service small cabin systems also. PP-1524T-3K/17SI-1 1.4kw PV array-Pole mounted $13,225.00 Off-grid use only-120/240vac output 3000 watts 22″ x 50″ x 18″ – Control unit-158 lbs Battery (12) 60 lbs each Details: Power Package includes: Outback GVX-1524 inverter (2), FM-60 controller, Mate, Hub-4, AC/DC disconnects with SO cord connections, 600 A/H 24VDC Silicon battery, Pole mounted PV array-1.4kw with array combiner and wiring.
