The First Ever Solar Energy Shandong Vicot Air Conditioning Unit

 - Sep 22, 2010
The Shandong Vicot Air Conditioning unit is the first solar-powered cooler ever. This is a huge step in eco-conscious technology considering how much energy is taken up by constant air conditioning in buildings and homes.

Developed in China, the Shandong Vicot Air Conditioning unit is able to maintain an 85% thermal cooling conversion efficiency and is also able to use over 27 times more solar energy than its conventional competitors. Not only will this system allow for 24 hours of continuous cool air, it also supplies heat and hot water.
