Yes we ran a geo-thermal heat-pump most of the summer on solar. Actually we where off-grid most of the summer.

Our system is sizeable 14.5 kW of solar 34kwhs of battery (lithium) and 20+ kw of inverter

The scenario was like this: As the sun rose in the morning the batteries began to charge and as the sun became more intense the air-conditioning would cycle more and longer By 10:00am the batteries where near full and the heat pump was beginning to flex its muscles to keep our home most comfortable.

The inverter supplied a clean uninterruptible 240 volt to supply the house. Not even breaking a sweat!!

As well the car is charging and clothes and dishes are washed and the list goes on.

Yes solar and air-conditioning fit well
