Home Forums General Discussion MBA/Engineering Off-Grid Refrigerator Project Reply To: MBA/Engineering Off-Grid Refrigerator Project


I’ve lived without a fridge for the last 9 years. For most of the time I find it no problem at all. I have an insulated cool box outside, in the shade of a north wall. Only for a short period (maybe 2-3 months) do I have any trouble, and that’s only really with fresh milk. It will only keep 24 hours or so when the weather is really warm. When I get more solar panels I may try a fridge but would only use it in the summer months.
