Fridge 2

Like all solar powered devices, a solar fridge harnesses the sun’s energy for its operation. Solar fridges are commonly used in:

  • Off-grid Medical facilities to store vaccines
  • Cabin homes / Rural homes without grid power
  • Safari/Camping sites

Types of Solar Fridges
There are two types of solar fridges: ones that use batteries and ones that don’t.

  • A solar fridge that uses batteries actually uses a combination of solar panels and batteries, the batteries serve as back up overnight and on sunless days.
  • Solar powered fridges that don’t require batteries are more modern and better suited to developing countries, as they can be made from basic household materials. Although these fridges are technically solar powered, they don’t use solar panels for power but rely instead on conduction, convection and evaporation and operates at an even 6°Celsius.
