Waterex: Take Water Out of Thin Air
I need to start my own moisture farm now. Then I can head down to Tashi Station and get some new gear for my landspeeder. No - seriously the Waterex water maker condenses water out of the air and will then serve it to you hot or cold. If you live in a humid area then I bet this would be a nice addition. However, it costs about $1780 bucks. Ouch! The Waterex web site claims the Waterex is energy efficient and has a five stage filtration system for only the purest water to drink after some extraction from the air. I don't think we will be putting our money where our mouth is with this one, but who knows. Maybe I'll strike it rich with my new moisture farm.

If you want a unit that is truly green you need which not only produces water from air but does it without any external electricity or fuel and which generates a single waste product cold air which can be used to reduce electricity consumption for air conditioning.
Such a unit exists and is called the A2wh.com (Air to water harvest) night radiant condensation system. It uses a small amount of photo voltaic power to run a microprocessor but most of the power is supplied by the cold of space using the same radiant cooling techniques used to cool spacecraft and billion dollar telescopes.
As compared to electric units the A2WH night radiant system can produce similar amounts of water while reducing greenhouse gas emission such as carbon dioxide by thousands of pounds per year.
