Refrigeration of food and other perishable goods, such as vaccines and medicines, is a big challenge in off-grid areas of southern countries. Today, most off-grid refrigerators run on kerosene or diesel, causing GHG emissions and local air pollution. At the same, solar radiation tends to be high in climates that have great needs for cooling, thus, providing an ideal environment for solar powered cooling appliances.
