    I have a 100 watt panel, but would a 750 watt inverter work?

  2. Hi Honey says:

    Nice video and thanks for the info on size of inverter 😀

    Have you tried to make ac unit with the ice maker?

  4. How many watts is  your battery bank?

    We used the same machine on the tugboat I worked on . I added a small float * ram a hose to a 5 gal water bottle to automatically refill it.  I am a firm believer in give a lazy man a job & he will find a more efficient way to do it.

    Where did you get the Ice Machine and what was the cost?

  7. Great idea! I use a bar fridge with a little freezer in it and fill the freezer section with freezer pacs and i run the fridge on max so it only turns on once ( i run it for 2 and a 1/4 hours at peak sun 11:00 tell 1:00ish) I then turn it off and place the pacs in the fridge section which keeps everything nice and cold. .Peace

    "ICE 101" – by igloo. can be found on ebay and some walmarts. there line of icemakers seem to be the most efficient. rated max. wattage 160 watts (averages 90 watts per hour). some comparable models have wattage ratings double that.

  9. What is the name of the Ice maker?

    Where did you get Ice maker?

    thanks. sound like a good idea. give it a try. you could also use the ice to cool down water. then pump that ice water through metal/copper tubing and blow a fan across the cold metal tubing. or just make a few batches of ice and blow fan over the ice. either idea should work for 'small/personal space' cooling. *for bigger blocks of ice consider hooking up a small chest freezer. should run fine on the solar system. some of the 3.5 cubic footers use about the same amount of power as the ice maker

    Nice video! Um…I have been thinking if I use the ice (made w solar power), put them in a water tank, run a metal pipe through it, connect fan to the end….will it work as a free air cooler??  (similar to how solar air heater works)
