Abstract:This technology provides an off-grid source of refrigeration and cooling for numerous applications. Existing solar refrigerators on the market use batteries that have a limited life, thus leading to higher operational costs throughout the life of the unit. Those desiring more versatility and lower operating costs would be the prime customer for this technology. These customers range from recreational and military to those in developing countries that lack even basic necessities, such as electricity.
