World’s First Solar Hybrid Air Conditioner Unveiled by LG – August 3, 2012
LG Electronics has announced the development of the first solar hybrid air conditioner in Korea. The eco-friendly air conditioning units harvest solar energy via a solar cell module attached to the top of the outdoor unit, which will be able to produce up to 70W of power per hour.
With the use of renewable solar energy, the hybrid air conditioner will be able to reduce about 212kg of CO2 over 10 years, which is equivalent to planting 780 pine trees over the same time.
