Storage of heat-sensitive vaccines at the right temperature is a crucial task and difficult in areas with limited or no electrical power.In recent years a new approach to solar refrigerator design has developed which eliminates the expensive energy efficient batteries.This technology
uses the sun’s energy to freeze water or other phase change material and then uses the cooling from that ice bank to keep the refrigerator cold during day and night. The unique feature of the Fridge is that the energy of the sun is stored in ice instead of in batteries.

Features of solar vaccine refrigerator :

1. Microprocessor control

2. CFC-free high-density foam insulation

3. Optimized refrigeration system design

4. Digital temperature display

5. Adjustable control range of 2℃ to 8℃

6. LCD temperature display

7. Safety lock for unauthorized access

An ice compartment keeps the cabinet at desired temperatures during the night.Thus, the sun's energy is captured by the solar panels and converted to direct current electricity.The DC current starts up the compressor which then runs the refrigeration cycle.Ice is produced in an ice storage compartment.The cool air is then circulated by convection and by a fan into the cabinet and hence maintained at the desired temperature by a thermostat.These refrigerators are environmentally friendly. The solar powered refrigerator is pretty easy to come by these days, and they overcome energy-consumption issues associated with traditional.
