Abstract : Calculations indicate that provision for diurnal ice storage, reducing peak air conditioning power demand, would save money by decreasing the amount and therefore the cost of the electrical generating equipment which must be installed. The thermal storage facility of a solar heating system might be used for this purpose, perhaps with chilled water rather than ice.
