Washington , Aug 12 (ANI): Tired of those massive electricity bills, courtesy the air conditioners? Well, heres a cool and economical solution to beat the heat GreenCore Airs solar powered air conditioner.

Whats more, the new air conditioner is environmental friendly too as its powered by a single 170-watt solar panel.

The company claims that its air conditioning unit can heat and cool a 600 square foot room.

Running on DC power, it does away with any need to put an AC inverter between the solar panel and the air conditioner.

This, in turn, wards off those power losses linked with converting AC to DC.

And in case theres no sun, the unit runs on an integrated battery bank.

GreenCore has released two versions of the air conditioner: a fixed one, and a mobile one that is mounted on wheels.

Currently, the new AC units are being tested by a McDonalds restaurant and the U.S. Navy. (ANI)
