A solar vending machine

Imagine climbing a mountain and realizing that you really want some Gatorade. Of course there are no vendors on mountain peaks, but maybe the possibility is not so far off….

Solar Vending has created a completely independent, off-grid vending machine that powers its vending and refrigeration mechanisms with solar power. The technology would allow businesses to place vending machines in locations otherwise impossible, such as on a beach, or on a golf course…. or, well, anywhere.

In addition to the endless new opportunities for locations, the devices don’t require power, saving you money. As an added bonus, it may be possible to receive energy efficient incentives or tax-credits as a business installing these vending machines.

But check this specs on the machine from the website:

· 12 volts direct current

· 120 watts photovoltaic power supply

· 60 watts DC compressor

· R134a (refrigerant)

· 12v coin validator

· 7 day power supply gel batteries

· Auto (empty no coin acceptance) power off

· Height 1.9m, witdh 0.6m, depth 1.0m

· Weight 80kg (nett empty)

· Foam insulation (highest “K” valuation)

· Outer casing – PVCU

    Solar vending machine was a great opportunity for businesses to have it and take the demand. This machine is optional to areas wherein people needs energy to work so. It is conveniently offers affordable energy drinks.
