12V and 24V DC Energy Efficient Refrigeration

Usually refrigeration is the largest electrical load on your energy system, improving refrigeration conditions in your home could mean major energy savings. Fortunately, the sun is shining when energy is most needed for refrigeration.

These highly efficient units with exceptionally low energy consumption require a smaller photovoltaic (PV) system for your refrigeration needs.  SunDanzer units feature 4.33" (110 mm) of polyurethane insulation and coated steel cabinets. The brushless DC motor compressor operates on 12 or 24 VDC. A patented low-frost system reduces frost build-up for low maintenance.

New! SunDanzer now has an AC powered Refrigerator and a Freezer for Hyper-Efficient electrically supplied homes and Off-Grid AC homes. (see bottom of this web page for specs. Dimensions are the same as the DC powered 165 models)

Features for All SunDanzer Models:

Energy-efficient
Automatic operation
Thick polyurethane insulation
Lockable lid
Interior light
Corrosion resistant coated steel exterior
Patented low-frost system
Easy to clean interior
Low maintenance

Had the boys up last weekend.  Fridge was a big hit.  Without a doubt it is the ultimate beer fridge (and everything else too).   Can't believe how much stuff you can put in it, especially cans of beer are made to measure, perfect fit.  I'm going to show it to everybody on the island.   Fantastic.

 Thanks again, Tony
