Meeting a Need

Low-to-no-cost cooling ...

SolarSnow Corporation is working to provide low-to-no-energy-using air coolers and refrigeration systems for the five billion people facing rising temperatures and increasing energy prices.

Using proven technologies, SolarSnow has developed maintenance-free, environmentally-friendly systems that use little or no photovoltaics because they use little or no electricity

Primarily, the sun's heat makes the cold. The only moving part is the fan (no compressor, no pumps). They cost less to make and operate cost-free or, in some larger systems, almost cost-free. 

Patented portable SolarSnow models, the size of computer screens, can be hung on the inside of closed windows "right out of the box" to provide gentle cooling for small sitting areas, cribs, kitchen tables, etc. Larger systems can sit on balconies, outside walls, roofs or the ground to cool apartments, homes, commercial and large industrial buildings, or be used for refrigeration. 

Key engineers on the Executive Team have helped advance existing sciences in the development of five unique systems. In two of the five, they are applying modern engineering strategies and materials to reintroduce centuries-old (pre electric grid) technologies and refine the science to meet a full range of cooling needs. 

Cooling has become the largest operational expense for homes and buildings in many parts of the world.

SolarSnow systems do not expel heat into the city streets like conventional air conditioners. Combined with major energy savings, these unique features will earn both social and marketing support as a money-saving technology that benefits the environment. 

The effort was initiated by directors of the Canadian Institute for Transpersonal and Integrative Sciences in 2005, followed by meetings with various government agencies and engineers in Canada, Thailand and China. The commercial component was incorporated as SolarSnow Corporation in the Province of Alberta, Canada in 2009 after four years of innitial research and development. 

SolarSnow will join a handful of names in the over $300 billion per year cooling industry as a green technology and as the first “low-to-no-energy-using” brand.

It is anticipated that manufacturing will be licensed or subcontracted mostly through existing appliance companies and sold as "SolarSnow by  ... whomever." Licensee profit-sharing and co-marketing opportunities exist.

Commercial distribution of the portable units would begin with the easiest-to-reach hot zones globally, especially those confronting increasing heat waves.

Low-to-no-cost cooling” will have an audience.

      Research and development on anticipated future and emerging designs will be ongoing, with testing in Asia where the cooling challenge is greatest.

      The current Thai-Canadian relationship represents a formidable opportunity:   Calgary, headquarters of SolarSnow, boasts some of the most sophisticated and efficient snow and ice-making systems in the world.   Bangkok is the world's hottest major city based on average daily highs and the country is the 2nd largest exporter of AC equipment (China is 1st).


The Paradigm Shift:    
     SolarSnow is working to replace expensive systems that make large amounts of cooling at great cost, with inexpensive systems that make smaller amounts of cold for free.
