Solar air conditioning

I've been a bit busy lately, but this is so cool that I have to mention it. There's a company in Plano, TX making solar-powered heating and cooling units.

Why is this awesome? Well, heating and air conditioning are energy hogs. About half of your energy bills go to climate control, so a solar-powered, self contained unit that can heat and cool could conceivably do things such as, I dunno, end global warming and dependance on foreign oil. It also makes having an off-the-grid house more realistic in my neck of the woods, where air conditioning is mandatory several months out of the year.

In conclusion, I want one really bad. I guess I'll have to put it in the wish list. Does Amazon sell air conditioners?
