NIDON Clean Energy has just completed the first SunTrac installation on a commercial chiller system.

Located in Honolulu, Hawaii, this 30-ton Carrier chiller is the first active chiller in the world that runs with the SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanel™.

The recorded amp draw by compressors post-installation is reduced by 60%. Energy savings will correspond with amperage drop to the compressors, along with reduced wear.

For the Hawaii market, this is foundational to achieving the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative which aims to achieve 100% renewable energy reliance by 2045. SunTrac has been successfully deployed across Hawaii on all major brands of air conditioning, to now include commercial systems. The technology reduces demand charges and electrical usage, leading to less land for solar, wind, and battery, protecting the people and the beauty of the islands in the process.
