Super Green Technology Co / Solar Cooling A/C Heating System (?)

10/26/2017 3:21 PM

I saw this on Alibaba yesterday, but I don't know much about it. In the pictures, the blue/green pipes that are connected to the water (?) tank, look like they are also connected to the r-410a (?) valve.

Is anyone familiar with this type of unit, know the cost & if it is an emerging technology or just something that looks good but isin't worth a plumb nickel.

Overpriced gimmick = $1695. + special solar panels = probably $2k for a 1 ton unit...that you can buy from Walmart for $400. new or used for $50...

From their intro:

"It is a professional manufacturer of solar pest control lamp,Solar air conditioner solar refrigerator and so on." "It", not "We" makes me suspicious.

Without a well defined U.S. presence and distribution system, I say try at your own risk and don't expect any tech support.

That doesn't mean that I think it's junk, I just wouldn't want to be the first to rely on it for cooling my house.

I think it's for those without grid access but with funds access.

Evaporated tubes to heat (water) then use the magic box on the back to make things cold?

Pretty cool I'm sure.

Solar chillers for domestic use used to be made in Australia in the 1970's, using the absorption chiller concept (as per gas refrigerators).

I have been trying to find one but they are pretty rare these days.

There was a Japanese manufacturer in the 2000's too.

This is hard to evaluate, because there is almost no readable information here. You, or somebody, should give a basic description of the operating principles of this system.

The unit runs on 50% grid power, 220V and 50% power from solar cell panels. That's why they call it hybrid. Quality is indeterminate and they are pushing for potential distributors to place sample orders to evaluate the quality. With the largest unit potentially needing a 2000-3000 watt solar panel, the price may not be too far out of line.

Here is another company that is offering the same type of product. Within the website, there is a host of information to assist in making an evaluation. Maybe engineers can use this information to make a determination.

1. www.solar-rating.org

2. www.gscn.solar

3. iea.shc.org

Here are the links as requested.

The first was found at Google : solar rating and certification corporation.

The second link was acquired from the first : global solar certification network.

The third was acquired from the second : solar heating & cooling programme international energy agency ( I went to Google and typed in : solar heating and cooling programme. When I pulled up the website, it showed : (&) ( international energy agency )
