Solar Powered ACs: Getting Closer

I'm always interested in threads on solar installation. I have a 68 DB Champion Generator because it is the only thing that will start up my 18 year old AC unit.

So, I found this article in CMET super interesting:

Salt-driven air conditioner looks to slash energy | Green Tech - CNET News

Wouldn't it be nice to own an AC that can be fully powered by our solar panels?

Here's hoping for a wonderful future within our trailers' lifetimes.
