Interesting, hadn't thought about this approach.

Rather than running the A/C compressor side off the engine, where it's completely parasitic, how about using one of the small Hybrid/Electric car A/C units that run off the battery. Then it could truly be an on-demand system independent of the vehicle's cabin A/C.
