Summary: An amount of 3434 pounds of sodium-sulfate based thermal storage material has been deployed in the Solar One House of the University of Delaware in a test of its efficacy as a coolness storage material for air conditioning using off-peak electricity. The test showed the material could store over 200,000 Btu's of coolness and that there was no significant change in its storage capability after 26 cycles carried out over a period of about four months.
