What is a Solar Air Conditioner?

A solar air conditioner also knows as solar AC, solar-powered AC, and hybrid solar air conditioner. Instead of being powered by grid electricity, these air conditioners are powered by solar energy generated by solar panel.

Solar air conditioners work in the same way as regular air conditioners do but they have more power options. A conventional air conditioner is powered by grid electricity only, while solar air conditioners, on the other hand, have three power options – Solar Power, Solar Battery Bank&Electricity Grid.

Solar air conditioners have become increasingly popular day by day. They are specially designed 5 stars rated intelligent air conditioners that will help you save money on utilities while also reducing your carbon footprint.

How Solar AC Works?

The basic design and working principle of a solar air conditioner is very simple. Solar air conditioners are designed in such a way so that they can directly be connected and draw the energy straight from solar panel.

Solar panels capture the sunlight and convert it into DC electricity (direct current) subsequently. This generated electricity is used to power the solar air conditioning unit. The number of solar panels required depends on the rating, the capacity of solar ac.

Solar air conditioners can also be connected with solar battery, allowing extra energy generated by the solar panels to be used at night or during power outages. Such solar AC are known as “solar hybrid air conditioners”.

Key Points:
  • On first priority solar AC will be run through solar power and at the same time, solar panel will charge the solar battery.
  • The solar battery bank can be used when the sun is not available or when solar panels are not generating electricity.
  • If the battery bank is not sufficient to run ac, it will automatically use the electricity from the grid.

Solar AC Price List

The most important factor that influencing a solar buying mindset is its price.In general, the price of a solar air conditioner depends on many factors such as its capacity, brand, and rating, type.

As on average, solar air conditioner price starts from Rs. 99000 for 1 ton and goes up to Rs.1.39 Lakh for 1.5 ton (including solar panelsolar inverter, and complete accessories).

Run Your Existing AC on Solar Power

The majority of homeowners already have air conditioners installed in their homes because everyone wants to stay cool in summer. However, running those air conditioners can be costly. So why not just run your existing AC on solar power.

In this era of inflation, no one wants to change their existing air conditioner and buy a new solar air conditioner instead. But now, you don’t need to change your air conditioner to switch to solar. You can convert your existing AC into solar AC instead of buying a new one.

Usually, normal air conditioners run on AC power and can’t be operated on DC electricity. So, to run your existing air conditioners on solar, all you need to install a 5kW solar system. It may either be an off-grid, on-grid, or hybrid solar system. All type of solar system have one thing in common, i.e. the Solar Inverter. A solar inverter is a smart solar device that transforms DC electricity into AC electricity and helps to run your AC on solar power.

Subsidy on Solar

To promote “Green and Clean Energy” everywhere in India, the government has started an initiative in the form of solar subsidy. Now any person who is eligible, can get solar installed at subsidized prices by taking advantage of this subsidy scheme of the government.

Working of Solar AC

  • In Sunny Days

    In the day time when the sky is clear and the day is sunny, then solar air conditioner works by using solar energy assisted by the utility grid. Solar power directly flows into the DC inverter air compressor. Solar air conditioner drives 95% of the electricity of your consumption directly from the solar system.

  • In Cloudy Days

    When the sky is not clear and it is cloudy outside then the air conditioner is powered by both of utility grid and solar energy. Solar power directly flows into the DC air compressor. On cloudy days, a solar air conditioner pulls 75% of the electricity of your consumption from the solar panel.

  • In Nights

    In the nights, a solar hybrid air conditioner is powered by the main utility grid alone. The solar system doesn’t generate power during the night.

FAQs - Solar Air Conditioner

Yes, it can be used as a stand-alone unit without electricity. Similarly, this AC will be powered by the solar panel on first priority and balance electricity will be stored in a solar battery provided with the system.  So, your AC will be running when the sun (solar power) and electricity both are not available.

Yes, people always ask us “we already have air conditioners installed at our home. Can we run these AC's on solar and reduce electricity bills.” You can add even other appliances too. We recommend you install on-grid solar system, off-grid solar system, or hybrid solar system.

On-grid solar system is the best, but depending on power availability as it works with the grid only.

You should buy 1.5-ton AC. 1 ton is not sufficient for hot reasons in major cities like Delhi, Punjab Haryana, Rajasthan, UP, MP, etc.

A solar air conditioner is the best option to reduce your electricity bills. It utilizes solar power instead of grid electricity to cooling the area. So if you are thinking to install an AC then you must go for a solar AC.

Solar air conditioners are a little bit expensive than normal AC. But, it is only a one-time investment. Once you get it installed, it will give you great ROI within a short time. 1-ton solar ac costs around Rs. 99,000 and 1.5-ton costs around 1.39 lakh.

To run 1 ton air conditioner, 1500 watt (230 Volt) power is required.

No, solar air conditioners are eco-friendly. A solar air conditioner mainly uses solar power to operate. Solar power is a clean source of energy. So these ACs will neither release CO2 and nor any other kind of harmful gases.

Yes, solar ac definitely works at night. During nights it drives electricity from the solar battery or the main utility grid.

It depends upon the capacity of your air conditioner and also on the power rating of a solar panel. For 1 ton AC, 6 solar panels (250 watt each) and for 1.5 ton ac, 10 solar panels (250 watt each) are sufficient.

A battery can run your AC for around 2 to 4 hours. The backup time will depend upon the capacity (1 ton or 1.5 ton) of your AC.

A solar air conditioner will consume both solar power and grid power as required. But a normal air conditioner will always be run on grid power, which is a major reason for heavy electricity bills.

For DC current, DC cables should be used and for AC, Ac cables should be used.

As per google Videocon, LG, Samsung, V-guard are the top brands that manufacture solar air conditioners.

No. Meanwhile, you can get government subsidy on on grid solar system, solar water pump, etc.
