23 year old Emily Cummins has invented a solar-powered fridge currently being used in Africa. It uses zero electricity to keep the contents at 43 degrees. Isn’t it amazing what some people do?
The solar-powered fridge, which she designed while still a schoolgirl, is now helping families in Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Botswana and Zimbabwe.
It works through evaporation and can be used to keep perishable goods such as milk and meat cool for days.
Without using any power, temperatures stay at around 6C.

Solar power is a one of the cleanest renewable energy sources available and solar power for homes is probably the most accessible alternative to fossil fuel based electricity. Solar water geysers make sense in sunny South Africa and the current Eskom rebates make solar geysers more affordable (at current Eskom electricity tariffs, solar water heaters typically amortize their initial cost within 36 months). Solar power installations can also be a marketable home improvement.
Water Rhapsody Water Conservation Systems has incorporated Yes Solar Mpumalanga so that we can offer solar water heating systems to further reduce your environmental impact (water and energy are linked). Yes Solar is a distributor for Solsquare Solar Solutions- high quality German-engineered solar energy systems that are competitively priced. Solsquare solar geysers are SABS- and Eskom-approved and are fitted by qualified, Eskom-accredited solar installers. Now is the time to install a solar geyser while the Eskom rebates last (this money will run out eventually) and before the looming energy crisis arrives. Solar water geysers can reduce household electricity costs by up to 50%.
Water Rhapsody’s WWF AWARD-winning water conservation systems (product demo) include rainwater harvesting systems, grey water recycling systems, swimming pool backwash recycling, water-saving toilet flushing mechanisms and rainwater tanks (we are authorised JoJo Tanks & Atlas Plastics water tank dealers in Mpumalanga and Limpopo- best water tank prices in the Lowveld!).
Our water and solar systems will save the environment while you save money on water and electricity bills; get free water and free water heating!
