One of the most challenging effects of climate change is lack of safe drinking water in more and more areas of the world. Wells are expensive and may contain toxins or give rise to legal hurdles. Conventional atmospheric water condensers are technically feasible but cost-prohibitive because of fuel or electricity consumption. A solar collector combined with an ammonia absorption refrigeration system is a perfect match where low-grade heat energy is efficiently collected from sunlight and used to drive a cooling cycle to condense ambient humidity while providing refrigeration and room cooling.

The condensate is essentially distilled water free of toxins commonly present in ground and surface sources. It is “virgin” from a structured water perspective sourced in situ from completely unstructured individual H2O vapor molecules and can therefore be considered nascent before any structuring has begun. Any previous “memory of water” would have been erased. This offers the unique opportunity to remineralize the water with selected beneficial mineral beds and use energizing flow patterns to revitalize it, and possibly imbue it with information if desired.

While solar concentrators and absorption refrigeration are not new technologies, the innovations are efficient transfer of heat from the concentrator to the refrigerator, automation, optimal system control with an inexpensive microcontroller and the low-cost/low-tech/low-maintenance design of the system. Currently there are no such systems on the market. Non-technical personnel can be taught to build, program, and maintain an installation. Since it is self-contained and self-sufficient, it is mobile if mounted on a trailer for rapid deployment to areas of need.
