Assuming a mid-size air conditioner you'd need enough solar panels to output about 1450 watts at 120 VAC.  A quick look on the Internet says such "off grid" systems are in the $6,000-$7,000 range.  I don't know if that assumes a certain amount of sun per day or you need to oversize the system to take into account cloudy days.
