Vapour compression systems are widely used in large scale of cooling application in industrial, commercial and institutional buildings. This conventional system did contribute to environmental problem; thus to overcome this issue nowadays, exploitation of solar energy for cooling purpose been studied. This paper presents a hybrid solar air conditioning system through appropriate solution for current problem of vapour compression system. However, solar air conditioning have major issue regarding an intermittence input due to unstable of daily solar radiation. Thus, introduction of thermal energy storage (TES) such as chilled water storage (CWS) foreseen to be the best solution and more economical compared to other types of storage. Through appropriate practicality in design and application, variation on solar collector area was analysed to determine optimum sizing which best suit with environmental factor. Surprisingly, the smallest collector area (150 m2) did shown highest saving on greenhouse gasses emission to environment.
