I am interested in going into the cooling business but one problem in Nigeria is the issue of unreliable power supply. I know that some people use generators but that ultimately is more expensive when you think of fuel and maintenance costs as well as the noise generated. I just want to have a power system that is quiet like Solar which will be also able to power a freezer without having to rely on NEPA. I know that Solar energy is growing in Nigeria but it's mostly used for powering small electronics like TV and fans. Is it possible to use it to power something heavy like a Freezer? How much will it cost me and what are the basic things I will need?

You will probably need at least 400 watts solar panels and Deep cycle batteries. Those are the 2 main things that will cost you money.

Yes solar can power something heavy like a freezer. There are solar freezers now available in Nigeria. I know because I have been using one for the past four years. I also sell and install. Visit my company website. Solar AC coming soon

The power you will need will depend on the power requirement of your freezer. There is normally a Maximum power input printed on the back or side of the machine and mine is about 1200 Watts which is what is required for peak operation although normal operation may require only 600 Watts or so to run it. You have to make some allowance for that peak demand of about 1200 Watts which is the maximum load required. For that amount of power and to run it for at least 4 hrs, you need at least a 1200 Watt solar panel, 100 Amp solar charge controller, a 400 Amp Hours of battery capacity and a 1200 Watt/1.2KVA inverter. Having up to 1500 Watts of Solar power won't be bad.
