Hot Rod!

Don't know if you caught my reply at the novel dump idea thread but I was wondering if you could give me a line on how to access this solar cooling article you're working on. Once it's done of course. ;)

    Solar Cooling

    Some very good info can be found at Solar Panels Plus. I spoke with Jeff at SPP about solar cooling and their absorption chillers last summer, and he was very helpful.

    Bottom line: The economic side of absorption chillers for residential applications is not particularly good. These are currently primarily a commercial system. They also offer PV-powered split systems now.
  • And thanks again!

    I'll take a look. yea, the Roburs ARE NOT CHEAP!! The only reason I've been able to sell them so far is the first guy has way too much money and the second one got a nice rebate from the local gas co. A rebate program which I helped to initiate. ;)

    They've been REAL SLOW about getting this rebate to me so now I believe I have to go back to the "Energy Conservation Management Board" and raise a little more hell. They're friggin' killing me with the lengthy "processing".
  • Wow! Super interesting!

    I knew nothing about this. Thanks some more!
