SunDanzer DC Refrigerator DCR50 or Freezer DCF50 Solar Mini Fridge

Solar Powered Energy Efficient Refrigeration

The SunDanzer® 50 liter DC refrigerator or freezer is the smallest SunDanzer ever, measuring only 26.5 x 23 x 30.5 inches (673 x 584 x 775 mm).

This ultra efficient unit has exceptionally low energy consumption requiring smaller, less expensive power systems and low operating expense.  The refrigerator version can operate on less than 45 watts of solar power in most climates.

Super-insulated cabinets feature 4.3 inches (11 cm) of polyurethane insulation with powdered-coated galvanized steel exterior and aluminum interior. A zero maintenance, brushless, thermostatically controlled DC compressor operates on 12 or 24 VDC. This chest-style refrigerator or freezer is easy to clean using the drain hole at the bottom of the unit.

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.
