When compared with other typical refrigerators, the DC solar refrigerator has an edge on several fronts. For one, it incorporates a novel energy recovery mechanism that not only utilizes the sun's heat but also collects energy that would otherwise be wasted - in this case - by the traditional cooling mechanisms of your kitchen. For another, it is one of the very few refrigerators on the market that feature an all-electric model. This means that power hungry AC drives don't have to be engaged for this unique refrigeration equipment to operate. Lastly, the model is the first solar-powered refrigerator to feature a cooling chamber that features both a top and bottom vent, which allows for proper airflow through the chiller and evaporator coils to cool the food.
A quick search of the internet will show that there are several brands of refrigerators that use electrical appliances as their cooling mechanism - some of which include small, compact refrigerators suitable for homes and small office spaces, as well as larger models capable of cooling entire buildings. However, the biggest advantage they offer is their lower energy consumption. The bottom line is, regardless of whether you choose a solar-powered model or a standard electrical appliance model, you will find that these types of refrigerators will significantly improve your overall quality of life.
