Solar Hybrid technology brings the cost of solar air conditioning down to a level similar to conventional systems. The large scale deployment of these systems will bring a benefit in the reduction of CO2 levels produced exceeding almost all other forms of renewable systems.
However, one of the most important results from this large scale up-take is that when used throughout the day as advised by CSE, the sudden high energy usage caused by consumers returning home from work and turning on the air conditioning to full power is eliminated. This will make it easier for the Utility companies to produce enough energy from their current infrastructure and therefore reduce the need to increase the cost of electricity to force a reduction in demand.
All levels of Government should be informed and requested to support the large scale uptake of these systems as the benefit is accrued to the whole community including the Utilities and Government.
