The first commercial air conditioners to incorporate solar thermal energy would be designed and built by the likes of Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking.
The idea of such a product has gained some momentum in recent years as air conditionings become more prevalent in aircraft and a growing number of commercial airplanes are equipped with solar thermal systems.
But it’s still not an entirely realistic scenario for the first commercial aircraft, which are often larger and more expensive than those that are built for the general public.
According to a report from the Aviation Industry Association, the first such commercial air-conditioning system will cost at least $3 million.
A similar project was estimated to cost $1.5 million to $2 million.
That’s more than double the cost of a conventional air-cooled engine in an airplane, according to a study published by the Aerospace Industries Association.
The AIA report suggests that such an air-condensing system would require at least two Boeing 737s or 777s, as well as a number of smaller planes.
The researchers estimated that the first two aircraft could be used to deliver about 50,000 kilowatt-hours of energy per year to the commercial fleet.
While it’s not quite as cost-effective as a solar thermal engine, the AIA researchers say it’s close enough for commercial customers.
They say the initial price of a commercial air conditioning system with solar technology could be $3.5 to $4 million, which is significantly cheaper than what most aircraft are currently charging.
The Boeing 737 MAX 707 can use about 100 kilowatts of solar energy.
The 737 MAX-7 is designed to deliver 1,500 kilowatthours per year.
The 737 MAX is a relatively affordable aircraft that can be configured for various types of operations.
The Boeing 737MAX 707 uses about 100kW of solar power for a total of up to 200kW.
The aircraft is designed for a maximum operating altitude of 35,000 feet.
The maximum rated speed is 2,400 kph.
The Airline Alliance has already said that it’s working on a solar-powered version of the 737 MAX.
The company plans to debut its 737 MAX7 in 2018.
The pilot’s manual for the aircraft says the pilot will use the power from the sun to reduce cabin noise and reduce turbulence in the cabin.
The new solar-electric engine could provide the same benefits for the 737MAX as for other aircraft.
For example, solar energy could help to reduce the energy requirements of the air conditioning systems on commercial aircraft and provide more efficient cooling of the aircrafts wings.
The Aviation Industry Alliance has yet to release an official plan for commercial solar power on commercial airplanes.
The organization has said that solar-power systems can be installed on existing aircrafts or on smaller aircrafts, and it’s also working on designs for large commercial aircrafts.
In 2018, the company reported that its 737MAX was the most successful commercial solar-energy platform ever built.
The AIA study estimated that it will take about a decade before commercial airconditioning systems on planes could be installed.
