SunDanzer Solar Refrigerators and Freezers

Sundanzer DCR50 Sundanzer DCR165SunDanzer Solar Refrigerators and Freezers

SunDanzer makes energy efficient, battery powered refrigerators and freezers that are ideal for solar and wind generator systems on large boats or on land. We use one of the small freezers (5.8 cubic feet) in our home.  It’s very energy efficient.  When the grocery store has a sale on meats or poultry (or whatever), I stock up the freezer.  When our organic garden produces more than we can eat, we process the excess & freeze it for later.  If a hurricane were to knock out the power grid here, we’ve still got the SunDanzer operating on solar panels and a battery to preserve groceries and to make ice.

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.

SunDanzer chest-style refrigerators and freezers are easy to clean using the drain hole at the bottom of the unit. With thick insulation and a refrigeration system optimized for solar, SunDanzer refrigerators and freezers provide outstanding economical and reliable operation. SunDanzer cabinets are commercially produced by one of the world’s leading appliance manufacturers.  Each SunDanzer solar refrigerator is carefully tested before shipment, to ensure every customer will receive a great product that they can enjoy for years to come!

There are two sizes each of the refrigerator and the freezer. SunDanzer recommends that my small freezer run on 190 watts of solar power and a 370 amp hour battery bank for a 4 day power supply, but we think this recommendation allows for a lot of safety margin.  Our friends at EcoFarm in Plant City, FL, have been running their large SunDanzer refrigerator on a single 60 watt solar module!
