Ice Energy Launches the Keep Your Cool™ Free HVAC Replacement and Energy Storage Program

World News: . []

COSTA MESA, Calif., March 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- , the leading provider of distributed thermal energy storage solutions for utilities, today announced the launch of the free HVAC replacement and energy storage program, available to qualified businesses in Orange County, California.

The company established the program as part of its historic award from Southern California Edison to provide 25.6 megawatts of behind-the-meter energy storage. Under the program, Orange County businesses are eligible to receive free, fully installed HVAC and thermal energy storage systems, using Ice Energy’s proprietary Ice Bear® solution.

The Ice Bear provides a unique solution to the problem of peak load management by connecting to one or more standard 5-20 ton rooftop commercial AC units and serving as a thermal battery. Ice Bear systems freeze standard tap water at night when demand for power is low and capacity is abundant. The stored ice is then used during the peak period of the day to provide uninterrupted cooling, using a fraction of the energy required to operate a traditional HVAC system and reducing air conditioning bills by up to 40 percent.

“As a certified Southern California Edison energy services provider, Ice Energy is committed to significantly lowering energy costs for Orange County businesses and reducing peak load on the grid,” said Mike Hopkins, CEO of Ice Energy. “The program provides immediate benefits to qualified OC businesses by delivering free, fully installed HVAC and energy storage solutions and reducing HVAC peak energy use by 95%.”

In addition to providing free Ice Bear systems through the program, Ice Energy will host a series of sponsored events to educate local business owners, property management firms and HVAC professionals on the enduring benefits of energy storage, as well as strategies to significantly reduce HVAC-related operational and capital expenditures.
