4 x 8-feet SunTrac panels on 3 Carrier Dual Stage compressor splits (2 6-Ton and a 7-Ton) and a 7.5-Ton Carrier Dual Stage RTU

Four SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanel™ on four Carrier Dual Stage units in the
Animal Clinic of Honolulu

Four SunTrac Solar Thermal SmartPanels installed on three Carrier Dual Stage compressor splits (two six tons and one seven tons) and a Carrier Dual Stage rooftop unit of 7.5 tons. We will be installing a pilot data logger with real time SEER/EER in a few weeks and will share updates on the data collected. Currently, all of these units are running only in the first stage as the SunTrac is more than offsetting the need to go to second stage. Temperatures are now in the high 80 to low 90°F.


The ROI for the entire project, including the Carrier units, will be less than three years. Solar thermal is the single best way to add efficiency to air conditioning.
