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 batteries to your air conditioning system can cut your cooling costs by up to 40%, and reduce your building carbon footprint without compromising comfort. Ice 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.
Ice Bear charges by making ice during off-peak hours when rates are low. When demand peaks and rates go up, your ice 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!
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!
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 batteries also use cheaper electricity than your air conditioner. You get more cooling for less money!
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.
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.
Ice batteries are not only a good financial investment, they also let you achieve your sustainability goals. They lower CO2 emissions by up to 40%, reduce nitrogen oxides emissions by up to 56% and support renewable energy integration into the grid. Ice Bears can easily be recycled and do not use any hazardous or toxic material.
While ice batteries help you save money and protect the environment, they also make a difference for your community.
Ice Energy trains and hires local certified HVAC contractors to install and maintain Ice Bears in your area, durably boosting the local economy. Ice Bears are also American-made. They are manufactured in Hammondsport, New York.
Ice Bears reduce the need for new and expensive peaking power plants and new power lines.
By switching AC compressors off when demand peaks, Ice Bears reduce stress on the grid, especially during heat waves.
Ice Bears allow utilities to integrate more renewable energy resources into the grid and lower emissions.
Ice Bears integrate seamlessly with your existing cooling system. They are compatible with most 4-20 tons commercial AC units and are installed on rooftops or on the ground by local certified HVAC contractors.
Ice Bears are commercially proven and require minimal maintenance. A smart-grid controller monitors your energy use and controls the performance of your system. Most fixes and repairs can be performed remotely.
