About

SP's design philosophy is to develop a system that provides the cheapest Watt of cooling. To do this, we have developed a solar thermal-driven cooling module, using an absorption refrigeration system.

Solar Polar's first refrigerating module will service the 90 million plus small-scale dairy and vegetable farmers in India who currently do not have access to on-farm refrigeration, causing 48% of all food produced in India to spoil. Our long-term vision is to develop applications of our solution to address a broad range of small-scale off-grid cold-chain and air-conditioning needs.
