Solar photovoltaics (PV) is hampered by the lack of solar radiation during peak energy demand hours of the day, e.g. 5- 8pm. The ability to shift the PV power curve and make the energy accessible during peak hours can be accomplished through pairing solar PV with energy storage technologies. A system of combining solar PV and ice thermal storage in order to operate conventional heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) units has been developed. The hybrid air conditioning system (HACS) consists of an array of PV panels running a DC compressor which operates a conventional HVAC unit using R134a that has two evaporators. A simple test run consisting of cycling the glycol solution through the glycol air handler with all other components shut down was performed. The glycol air handler ran for 6 hours and the initial cooling power was 4.5 kWth.
