A hot summer and a frying pan house? Well, If you hate paying high electricity bills, here comes a neat alternative energy air-conditioner unit. The Shandong base Vicot’s new air conditioner unit is the first one its kind designed to be powered by direct solar energy.


The eco-friendly air conditioner unit is capable to harvest solar energy 27 times more efficient than typical water heater unit, which means, you could use it asyour bath-tub’s water heating unit using the same solar energy as well. Alternatively, you could also use liquid petroleum gas to heat up the water.

This is an ideal air-conditioner units for shopping malls, restaurants or other public places that requires great electricity consumptions during daytime.

Hopefully there will be more Air-conditioner manufacturer taking similar green step providing eco-friendly and more affordable air-conditioning unit in near future.
