Solar Power a Refrigerator Freezer. average power use 30 watts! (740 watts a day) can be run on a single solar panel! (and 2 batteries). Kenmore ‘Freezer Fridge’ has a relatively large freezer (holds full gallon jugs). great “freezer fridge” for off grid living. very low power comsumption. only $149.00 from Sears. one of the most efficient models on the market. note: uses approx. 50 watts the first hour to cool down. use large inverter because the power spikes for a fraction of a second to turn on compressor. monocrystalline panel is from Amazon. it’s a 100 watt Renogy panel. $179.99 – free shipping. if you need more “freezer” and less “fridge” many 3.5 to 5.0 cubic foot chest freezers use the same amount of power. this freezer will hold full size gallon jugs. great way to make ice for solar cooling projects… To see how to hook up the solar system go to my video titled, “how to hook up solar panels (with battery bank)”. it shows exactly how to easily hook it all up.
