One of the best market in Nigeria is electronics especially the sales of generator. The citizen of the country has taken to any means that create solution to the regular interruption in power supply.  Nigeria is one of the hottest weather, thus, there is the need to regularly seek solution to the killing heat especially during dry season.

The introduction of Solar energy is one of the best innovation for this situation. Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available. Solar technologies can make use of  the energy generated for many use , including generating electricity, providing light or a comfortable interior environment, and heating water for domestic, commercial, or industrial use.

A lot of purposes are been attached to the renewable power for daily uses in home and offices. Solar power is connected to houses and office space to reduce the cost of electricity and regular purchase of fuel for generators. However,  though solar energy is renewable and sufficient there is limit to what it can power at a time. This is due to  the power consumption of most equipment and appliances in the house or offices.

Therefore, most manufacturers are now cutting edges in making sure the new trend of solar power is effectively followed. There is the introduction of solar lamp, Solar fan, Solar AC and finally, Solar Freezer and Refrigerator were lunched.

Solar Freezer and Refrigerator

A solar-powered refrigerator is a refrigerator which runs on energy directly provided by solar. This Solar Freezer is a DC freezer it works solely when connected to batteries, it is not connected to mains, although the batteries can be charged with solar and also with mains powers through a battery charger. This new innovation is quite useful and efficient. The Solar Fridge and Solar Freezer can be used on  trips as well as isolated locations .

The refrigerator has a built-in inverter that converts the DC current from the solar panel to AC current required by the internal components of the refrigerator. The solar panel charges the battery which automatically supply the freezer after conversion. although, the battery can also be charge using direct power supply.Solar-powered refrigerators are able to keep perishable goods such as meat and dairy cool in hot climates, and are used to keep much needed vaccines at their appropriate temperature to avoid spoilage.

Solar-powered refrigerators may be most commonly used in the developing world to help mitigate poverty, supplement the lack of electricity and energy conservation.
