Distributed thermal energy storage company Ice Energy launched a program for its business customers in Orange County, California that offers free, fully installed HVAC and energy storage solutions.

The company established the Keep Your Cool program as part of its award from Southern California Edison to provide 25.6 MW of behind-the-meter energy storage.

Ice Energy's Ice Bear system delivers 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.
