This project will involve building a solar-powered refrigerator for communal use. Community fridges are essential services that provide reliable access to affordable and nutritious food to a rapidly increasing number of food-insecure and impoverished people in the United States. There is a significant amount of food waste that could be prevented and could instead help those in need.
Additionally, with a solar-powered fridge, the energy cost will be significantly reduced when compared to fossil fuel-powered fridges.
Furthermore, a solar-powered fridge would be better for the environment by reducing the use of nonrenewables and limiting pollutants in the environment.
