Wind and solar energy by hour for the continental USA

How does your state stack up for wind and solar availability?

How many solar panels are needed to run an air conditioner off-grid?

Airspool needs 3 solar panels, making it an outlier. Other normal air conditioners either need many more panels or they need a whole lotta batteries. Airspool needs not batteries, voltage regulators, net metering, or power inversion.

Don't be like Mr. Burns this Earth Day!

Net metering, slowly but surely, is going away, driving solar users to off-grid or hybrid

Is this a battle that's worth worrying about needing to fight in the future? Control your solar production and use it locally to heat and cool your home. Leverage the grid when it's cloudy or nighttime. State’s Department of Public Service recommends cuts to net metering rates https://vtdigger.org/2022/04/19/states-department-of-public-service-recommends-cuts-to-net-metering-rates/ via @vtdigger Net metering, slowly but surely, is going away.

More hurricanes? Airspool stays running even when the power's out after storms.

Solar-powered air conditioning units that are capable of running off-grid stay up and running, even when the grid and net-metered rooftop solar power is down.

Yes, solar is projected to save the world

Ember confirms that we can do this preventing future global warming thing. U.S. is still under 5% renewables, but we'll get there.

Why Solar is Heading for a Win

Q: What's carbon-neutral, and continues to get cheaper every year to use? (Hint: it's already cheaper than coal or natural gas, without even taking into account the sizable environmental impact of these fuels.) A: It's solar!

Where Solar-Powered Air Conditioning Works and Why That's Good News

In short, solar-powered air conditioning works where it's sunny, and that's good news since air conditioning units are forecasted to increase 250% by 2050, and since the greatest adoption in the coming years will be in the sunniest parts of our planet.

Hello World--Welcome to the Future of Air Conditioning

Solar-powered air conditioning was neither affordable nor viable in the past, since solar panel and electronic design technology wasn't where it is today. Now, 3 or 4 solar panels can run 12,000 BTUs of air conditioning. Cloudy or nighttime? No problem. Plug in to 120v grid power for super-efficient 22-SEER cooling.
