# how many watts for two freezers will i need to make solar panel?

im trying to power two 4 amp 115 v 60 hz freezers for an icecream truck by using a solar panel but am having trouble figuring out how many solar cells i am going to need or watts i will need so i can figure out how many cells. i dont know if the voltage is right on the cells when they produce the right watts. any one know how i can figure this out?

should do the job.

should do the job.

batteriespowering an inverter, which powers the freezers. The freezers themselves will run more or less off-and-on. When the freezers are not running, all that solar energy coming into the panels has to go somewhere. Why not put it into some beefy batteries, and have your inverter run off the batteries? Then your cloudy day problem is kicked in the pants.And yes, 460 watts should do the trick. But, looking on eBay, do you have that much room on top of the truck? (2 panels, each 65 x 37.5 inches, you'd need 5'5" x 6'3".)

^{.}you've been the most helpful and um actually looking at the truck agian one freezer is 4 amps and there is a smaller one that is 1.7 amps so a total of 5.7 sorry for the other info lol sitll helpfull though now i might have just enough room for the panel and if not, the freezers are only unplugged from the house power for about 8 hours plenty of time i think for them both to run off batteries and the panels or am i figuring this wrong?Steve

^{.}im hopeing to try this project on my house too i just need to find the time out of the navy and out of leave lol thank you very much for your help^{.}
