Panasonic Introduces Efficient Air-Conditioners in India

From Mr. Lalloobhoy Battliwala

Looks like Panasonic introduced a new air-conditioner in the Indian market. It's supposed to be more efficient and I suspect the 'inverter' means it probably has a battery in there to cope with short outages. Since many Indian rich also have their generators - because of outages - distributed generation is already a fact of life. And given the inefficiencies in the Indian power network, and the availability of pilfered kerosene at low prices, running high-efficiency air-conditioners on own generators looks like a winner.

And a perfect solution for rural electrification (farmhouses of the rich). Even solar PV.
