Solar and Gas Powered Refrigerators and Freezers
Refrigerators and freezers can be the biggest users of electricity. When off-grid, it is more economical to first reduce your energy use, and then design your solar power system based on the smaller consumption. A great way of doing this is by replacing your old energy hog fridge and freezer with an ultra-efficient one.
A typical fridge can use about 1kWh a day, requiring around 400 watts of solar or more. A solar fridge will use a fraction of that, and can be run on a solar panel as small as 150 watts or less, depending on the size of the fridge. The battery bank to store this energy will also be a fraction of the size, saving a lot of money. A gas fridge uses no electricity at all, getting its energy from gas or kerosene.
