Solar Refrigerators & Freezers

Solar Refrigerators & Freezers Energy Efficient Small Refrigerators Operate on 12 or 24 Volt DC

SunDanzer direct current (DC) refrigerators and freezers are specifically designed for high efficiency and low energy consumption to allow refrigeration to operate on the smallest possible energy input from a solar energy system, micro-turbine, wind generator, fuel cell or battery.

See more information about the new SunDanzer Solar Refridgerator Model DC50 Mini Fridge.

SunDanzer super-insulated high efficiency refrigerators and freezers are ideally suited for:

  • Folks who want to power their lives off the grid
  • Folks who want to save money on refrigeration energy costs

  • Remote homes, wilderness cabins, eco-resorts, research stations

  • Boats, marine and recreational vehicles

  • Missionaries and remote medical clinics

  • Solar powered backup for hospitals

  • Emergency responders operating in power outage areas

  • Food and beverage vendors who have sunshine but no generator or plug in

  • Emergency back up and disaster preparedness

  • Ice making without fossil fuels or grid power

  • Remote villages in areas of the world without grid electricity

  • Farmer's markets and traveling vendors

Low energy consumption is the key to allow refrigerators and freezers to be cost effectively operated from solar and other renewable power resources.  You can now have refrigeration where it was previously unavailable or prohibitively expensive.

SunDanzer solar freezers and refrigerators will operate on 75 watts of solar panels in most climates.  Other features:

  • Top loading chest type design that keeps the cold in the compartment and not running out the bottom freezing your toes

  • Stackable basket design for storage organization

  • Operate on 12 or 24 Volts DC with built in low voltage automatic disconnect for battery protection

  • Use an environmentally friendly refrigerant CFC free R-134a

  • Patented low frost system

  • Rugged scratch resistant galvanized steel exterior

  • Easy to clean aluminum interior with bottom drain hole

  • Lockable lid with interior light

  • Automatic control adjustable thermostat

  • Zero maintenance brushless thermostatically controlled compressor

  • A change in the thermostat installation makes a refrigerator a freezer or vice versa!

  • Super insulated with 4.3 inches (11 centimeters) of polyurethane insulation

  • One year factory warranty

  • SunDanzer also has a 115 VAC power supply option.

A note about freezers versus refrigerators: it typically takes 3 to 4 times as much energy to continuously operate a freezer versus a refrigerator.  Thus, from a total system investment perspective, the best return on investment is to purchase the smallest freezer that will meet your needs.  Situating a solar freezer in a location with the lowest ambient temperature environment also makes a significant difference in the size of the solar system needed for continuous operation, either air conditioned space or in a cellar or basement.

Here's a SunDanzer user tip:  If you have a SunDanzer refrigerator in an off grid location and are using ice, buy a small drink cooler (the one we use holds 10 pounds of ice) and store your ice in the cooler inside the refrigerator.  This not only reduces the energy load of the refrigerator during warm weather, it will also keep your ice frozen longer.  It's a double benefit!  How cool is that, pun intended.
