SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Ice Energy, a leading provider of thermal energy storage solutions, has introduced the Ice Bear 20, a smaller-capacity version of its flagship Ice Bear system for residential cooling. The new system combines Ice Energy’s patented thermal storage and smart grid technology with integrated cooling, enabling utilities to control residential cooling load and reduce peak demand by up to 95 percent for up to four hours. It also allows increased load during periods of solar over-generation, while providing homeowners the cooling they desire.
The company said the Ice Bear 20 is ideally suited for residential and small commercial applications. In residential applications, it integrates with the HVAC system of new or existing homes.
