Batteryworld is the leading distributor of solar fridges & Freezers in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania

solar-powered refrigerator is a refrigerator which runs on energy directly provided by sun, and may include photovoltaic or solar thermal energy.

Solar-powered refrigerators are able to keep perishable goods such as meat and dairy cool in hot climates, and are used to keep much needed vaccines at their appropriate temperature to avoid spoilage.

Solar-powered refrigerators may be most commonly used in rural areas where people do not have access to gird power

A solar refrigerator is a cooling appliance that is operated completely with energy harnessed from the sun. A solar refrigerator can store food, medications, and other products that require cold temperatures. For decades people have used electrical compressors to power their refrigerators, but engineers are learning that solar power can keep the refrigerator running just as well as electricity can.

The idea for a solar refrigerator first occurred to an engineer named Otto Mohr in 1935. He wanted to create a refrigerator that wouldn’t require any energy other than exposure to sunlight for two hours per day. He was able to describe all of the correct components needed to build the solar refrigerator and make it work. Since that time, more engineers, scientists, and researchers have all developed prototypes based on Otto Mohr’s original work.

With a solar refrigerator, the parts of the refrigerator – the compressor, condenser, and other components don’t change. The only thing that changes is how the energy is supplied to the refrigerator. Instead of using an electrical system it uses solar power.
