Olga runs refrigerator with solar energy
The main power consumer on board is clearly the refrigerator. The compressor draws a current of about 5 A and ticks relatively often. Especially on hot days at anchor when we would have needed the refrigerator especially, he stayed off to save the battery.
Now we have the FLINsail, which provides us with energy throughout the day. When the panels are properly aligned, our 2M FLINsail also generates charging currents of up to 10 amps in the morning and evening.
We've even developed some ambition, since you can use an app to see how much energy the FLINsail is generating. So we always find the perfect alignment to the sun. All in all, a very successful product, which especially facilitates anchoring and thus ensures the enjoyment of cool drinks, among other things.
