Answer: A solar air conditioner works in the same way as a normal air conditioner. The only difference is these solar coolers are powered by sun’s energy. They reduce your dependence on utility grids. Solar A/cs can be powered by PV (photovoltaic cells) or Solar Thermal system. The latter is said to be much more efficient and cost effective as compared to a Solar PV system. PVs also need inverters. And there are very few inverter systems available in the market that can take the load of an air conditioner.
