powered air conditioning unit offered by Securusair, that is a 48

This unit has four 200 watt standard solar panels mounted on the roof,
which charge four 12 volt deep cycle batteries.
solar powered air conditioner system runs off of straight DC
voltage, no power inverter is needed, which makes it much more energy
Some of the features of this unit include a brushless
DC permanent magnet motor. This
unit is whisper quiet in its operation and produces up to 18,000 BTU of
cooling power. It can be
purchased for as little as $3,500, depending on specials that are being
