Low-To-No-Cost Cooling
for a rapidly warming world


SolarSnow is a Canadian company developing cooling systems that operate cost-free for the five billion people facing both rising temperatures and increasing energy prices.

Using proven technologies, some centuries old, SolarSnow has been designing maintenance-free, environmentally-friendly systems that use the sun's heat rather than electricity to make cold The only moving part is the fan (no pump or compressor), so the systems can operate cost-free or, with large commercial units, mostly cost-free

Patents for SolarSnow's portable models (the size of 24" computer screens) have been published in 242 countries and territories. Patents were granted in 2020 by the USA, in 2021 by China and in 2022 by Hong Kong. Availability target: 2026. They will hang on the inside of closed windows to provide a stream of gentle cooling for small sitting areas, cribs, kitchen tables, etc, and are mostly transparent, allowing for visibility to the outdoors. They are more than just emergency back-ups in power outages.

Much larger systems utilizing different technological strategies can be positioned on balconies, outside walls, roofs or the ground to cool homes, commercial or industrial buildings, commercial freezers, etc. 

SolarSnow engineers have been innovating strategies using contemporary materials and techniques to reintroduce the mostly pre-grid technologies in five models. A sixth model under development is a plug-in zone cooler utilizing less than 100 watts.

Cooling has become the largest operational expense for homes and buildings in much of the world. Beyond energy savings, SolarSnow systems do not expel heat into the streets as conventional air conditioners do. All systems operate independently, but can also provide cooling in conjunction with any conventional system so it will use less electricity.

The effort was initiated in Calgary, Canada by directors of the Canadian Institute for Transpersonal and Integrative Sciences late 2005, followed by meetings with various government agencies and engineers in Canada, Thailand and China. After four years of research, in 2009 the project was incorporated as SolarSnow Corporation in the Province of Alberta, Canada, and development began on a series of systems utilizing several grid-free approaches to handle various scales of demand. 

SolarSnow will join a handful of names in the over $300 billion per year cooling industry as the first all-green brand name. 

As refinement of the various systems approaches, it is anticipated that manufacturing will be licensed or subcontracted mostly through existing appliance companies and sold as "SolarSnow by whomever." Licensee profit-sharing, co-marketing and carbon credit relationship opportunities are being sought.

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

Low-to-no-cost cooling” has a ready market. 

   The Thai, Canadian and China relationship provide a formidable opportunity:  
-  Calgary, headquarters of SolarSnow, boasts some of the most sophisticated and efficient snow and ice-making systems in the world.
is the world's hottest major city based on average daily highs, great for research, while Thailand is the 2nd largest exporter of AC equipment .
-  Guangdong is home to OEMs familiar with SolarSnow technologies, home to one of the world's two largest appliance manufacturers and adjacent to the other.

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