In the last webinar of our virtual Technology Roadshow we will learn more about R290 Split ACs in Grenada. Suppliers, Users and Policy Makers on the islands express their views on this climate- and ozone-friendly alternative to conventional ACs.

Two companies distributing R290 Split ACs will talk about their choice for a natural refrigerant:

  • Grenz Concept: The company installed the first R290 unit in May 2019 in Grenada. Since then, customers have been very interested in the ACs, especially due to their high energy efficiency and the aspect that they are environmentally friendly. 
  • Modern Electrical Solution: Founded in 2012, the company quickly became a pioneer for solar energy in Grenada. To keep Grenada cool naturally, Modern Electrical Solutions decided to install R290 units to replace the refrigerant 400a. 

Aditionally, Leslie Smith, Head of Grenada's National Ozone Unit (NOU), gives an overview of the advantages of Grenada's  path to Green Cooling and how Grenada's National Ozone Unit is is assisting companies like Grenz Concepts and Modern Electrial Solutions in training technicians in the safe use of hydrocarbons.
