DIRECT FIRED SOLAR AC MOTOR SOLUTIONS
Phase Save Research And Development is excited to bring a leading edge
solution that for the first time offers a saving based model for solar power
verses California’s investor owned utility rates for pumping.
After years of field trails and now with the backing of a world leading drive
and pump manufacture ABB/Danfoss we are proud to offer direct solar
fired AC solutions that can be retrofitted onto large existing wells.
The rugged drives are designed to work directly from solar panels without
the need of batteries or the grid. Off-griding a well eliminates both the
demand and usage charges from the utility bill. This can provide a good
rate of return in most scenarios. Large water purveyors hauling diesel for
remote farming have a payback in as little as two years.
Using a fixed solar array this solution provides 7+ hours of summer pump
time per day and 4+ hours of winter pump time per day on average.
Depending on your pumping needs the drives can be grid or battery
coupled for extended pumping times. Our engineers will do their best to
find the right combination for your needs.
As a second major benefit these systems provide backup from long term
grid failure caused by natural disaster. Sunny California is prone to fires
and earthquakes and this solution pumps as long as the sun shines. For
investors this provides an additional social entrepreneurial incentive.
We are working with finance partners to bring PPA offerings to capture the
tax incentives not available to the public districts. We hope you can be a
part of this developing niche.

Ultrasonic neutralizers offer an energy efficient way of making pre-cooling mist for various cooling
applications. Most water contains scaling agents that will foul the nebulizers and equipment cooled. A
solution to this is to use purified water. Reverse Osmosis is touted as the best method, however is
costly and wasteful of water on a small scale.
Condensate waste water from
air conditioning equipment is
relative pure from scaling
agents and may provide a
solution on a small scale.
A Menchies Yogurt shop in
South Pasadena provides a
good test ground to prove this
concept. The business has two
4 ton air conditioners and
glycol cooling towers for the
yogurt machines. We are
exploring using the condensate
to provide pre-cooling mist for
the cooling towers.
To the right is a basic diagram
of the system we designed to
accomplish this.
We utilized solar power as the
power source as its power
pattern matches the best of use
time scenarios. Utilizing the
panels to provide shade from
the direct midday sun on the
towers is a side benefit.
We came to conclusion that
adding a solar still can extend
the range of performance into
the edge months were AC
utilization is low.
