Greetings Fellow Sun Lovers,
I am reading 800 starting watts on a Whirlpool ETOWSRXMQ03 refrigerator with my new "P3 KillAWatt EZ" power meter. This seems quite low. Can I trust this reading for designing my battery backup system? I have 2 - identical refrigerators like this and I need to purchase an inverter / charger that will handle starting both of them up at the same time. These two refrigerators are the only items that need backup power. I need to provide back up power to these refrigerators for 8 - hours.
PS. I am an electrical contractor if anyone has any AC electrical questions I will be glad to help.
