  •  Small Solar Powered Air Conditioner (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I googled "small solar powered air conditioner" and came up with a number of articles and youtube videos which show examples.  Unfortunately, these seem to require a number of solar panels rather than just one or two.  AC is a big load, just like a refrigerator.

    You might also want to take a look at "passive solar cooling," something that people have been doing for thousands of years.  Lots of good ideas there that may be of use.

    If that doesn't work for you, let me know and I'll see what I can find.

      Feel silly for not searching it that way, but hung up on the "one!" D'oh! I'll definitely check passive.
