Call to Government Leaders, Get Ready for Summer by Decreasing Your Air Conditioning Load 10-Fold with Coolerado
Adopt a Big Green Initiative and Cut Energy Costs, Create Green Collar Jobs, Stay Net Water Zero, Utilize Solar Energy
• Scientific breakthrough in green air conditioning technology: M-Cycle and how it works
• Denver: model city for Green initiative, switches on cooling system for library that reduces load from 50,000 watts to 5,000 watts – the amount of power typically used to cool a small home
• DOE concludes Coolerado can ease the largest peak burden on the utility grid, air conditioning
Denver, Colorado, May 26, 2009, Using solar energy to cool the world, Coolerado today issued a call to government leaders to go big with their Big Green initiatives this summer by substantially improving their air conditioning cost and load for the betterment of the environment, as well as the economy.
Air conditioning is the largest summer peak load on the power grid and accounts for about one third of the peak in places like California, according to the Department of Energy (DOE) and the California Energy Commission. “For Green programs to have a measurable impact, such as offsetting the need to build power plants to meet air conditioning load, government leaders are going to have go big and get beyond Green window dressing,” said Mike Luby, CEO of Coolerado Corporation. “Fortunately implementing a Big Green program is easy with Coolerado air conditioners because there is no sacrifice in comfort for using one tenth the power.”
Coolerado’s claims are backed up by a Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) report that concludes “widespread deployment of this technology in average to dry climates in the United States could have a significant positive impact on electric demand and ease the burden on the utility grid.” It continues, “This technology also has the potential to have a significant impact on an agency’s energy bills in terms of reducing both energy and demand costs.” See FEMP report at http://www1.eere.energy.gov/femp/pdfs/tir_coolerado.pdf.
The City of Denver has embraced a Big Green initiative and is installing many more Coolerado air conditioners to cut energy costs, create green collar jobs, and stay net water zero. Mr. Gregory Bertram, P.E., senior engineer with the City of Denver recently described his experience with the City’s first Coolerado installation at historic fire station 11, “on a 98 degree afternoon, I measured temperatures inside the dormitory at 74 degrees. Now you got to remember, this is historic fire station number 11, with un-insulated brick walls, leaky casement single pane windows, and we’re cooling the second story for less power than it takes to operate a standard hair dryer. Okay, I was pretty excited at that point.”
“I think now more than ever we see that these kinds of solutions that are based in sustainability go hand in hand with economic development,” said Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, “Companies like Coolerado are making us all healthier as well as our economy healthier.” The Mayor’s comments were made at an event commemorating the replacement of a 50,000 watt air conditioner with a 5,000 watt Coolerado air conditioning system on a library. At one tenth the power draw, 5,000 watts is typically what would power a small home, not a whole library. See video at http://www.coolerado.com/news/green-buildings-green-jobs-celebration/.
Defying skeptics in the scientific community, Coolerado air conditioners utilize its revolutionary cooling process called the M-Cycle that uses water to cool air without adding humidity to the air that enters the building. The M-Cycle does not use chemical refrigerants, and creates a healthier, more comfortable, living environment by providing continuous fresh air as an integral part of the cooling process.

Even though a small amount of water is used by the Coolerado air conditioner, regional water use remains constant because far less water is needed to produce energy at the power plant. Mr. Bertram said, “Yes, Coolerado uses water to make cold air, but it uses no more water than an air conditioning unit doing the same job would use.”
Coolerado air conditioners are available for purchase through its distribution network which can be accessed along with more information by visiting www.Coolerado.com.
