|Main Equipments Required for Solar Air Conditioning|
As you can see from the above image and from the previous post how solar air conditioning works, there are certain things you need to account for to see if your building will be able to accommodate the solar air conditioning equipment such as:
Roof Area Required for Panel Installation on Roof:
Harvesting solar energy via solar thermal panels that is used to feed hot water to the absorption chiller requires a lot of space on the roof or open space. This is not like thermal panels for water heating where 40 Deg C will be sufficient for a shower. The absorption chiller requires input temperature of around 80 Deg C and above for it to operate efficiently and you would get a 6 Deg C chilled water output.
