Control your cooling costs

Are your cooling bills going up? Air conditioning represents up to 40% of a building's peak electricity use and can weigh heavily on your bottom line. Adding Ice Bear AC modifications to your air conditioning system can cut your cooling costs by up to 40%, and reduce your building carbon footprint without compromising comfort. Ice Bear batteries are one of the greenest and smartest energy investments you can make to save money, improve your building and increase the comfort of its occupants.


Icy smart

Ice Bear charges by making ice during off-peak hours when rates are low. When demand peaks and rates go up, your Ice Bear battery turns off the AC compressor and uses the stored ice to provide cooling instead. A smart-grid controller allows you to monitor your energy use and to control the performance of your system. The results speak for themselves: a 95% reduction of your peak cooling electricity use and immediate savings!

Save up to 40% on your cooling bill

Ice Bear technology delivers significant energy cost savings. Utility sponsored programs can significantly reduce or even eliminate your upfront investment. Taking control of your cooling costs has never been easier or less expensive!

1. Get more for less

Ice Bears’ efficient cooling technology reduces your overall energy use by taking over for your AC for up to 6 hours a day. By making ice when rates are low and using the stored ice to cool your building when rates are high, your Ice Bear batteries also use cheaper electricity than your air conditioner. You get more cooling for less money!

2. Get free or low-cost equipment

In areas where air conditioning stresses the grid, Ice Energy partners with utilities to deliver free Ice Bears and reduced-cost, efficient new AC units to building owners. You get an unbelievable deal and start saving from day one. You also help your utility better manage cooling demand in your community. It is a win-win and an easy way to improve your bottom line.

3. Put little or no money down

Ice Bear’s groundbreaking technology can also qualify for clean energy incentives such as the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and the Self Generation Incentive Program in California. These programs let you save on equipment and installation costs, and make Ice Bear storage a great investment, whether or not your utility has partnered with Ice Energy.
