A Solar Powered Fridge as an Emergency Back-up for a Cabin or even Camping
Whether you’re looking for a fridge because you’re off the grid, or a fridge to have as a back-up during a power outage, or as a creative way to save money, a solar-powered refrigerator is a viable option.
Cottagers will find a solar fridge handy. When grid-power is unreliable, using solar energy is an obvious yet rarely considered option for appliances. Granted, it can be a bit unnerving to think of a machine being able to keep food cold without being plugged in; however, today’s solar options are much more sophisticated than those of 20 or even ten years ago. When propane energy is too much of an expense for all your Cottage needs, solar power is another option.
When shopping for a solar-powered fridge, be sure to confirm whether the appliance comes with solar panels and batteries. In most cases, you have to purchase those separately. However, double-check that. The manufacturer can usually provide advice on the compatible panels and battery for their product.
At this time, two solar fridges are featured – they’re in short supply, so check back or check for more as they come available on eBay.
