How many watts does a normal refrigerator take?
Considering this, how many watts does a standard refrigerator use?
Find the voltage and amperage of the refrigerator; for instance, you may see "115 V" and "6.5 amps." Multiplying these two numbers tells you how many watts your refrigerator uses -- in this case, 747.5 watts. Smaller refrigerators typically use about 350 watts, while larger models use as much as 780 watts.
Similarly one may ask, can a 2000 watt generator run a refrigerator?
Speaking of which, one of the most common appliances, either in an RV or at home, that you are likely to always want to be able to power is a refrigerator. Luckily, with a 2000 watt generator, you can indeed run a mid-sized refrigerator as long as its energy star rated and uses no more than 1200 of starting watt power.
So the average U.S. home (900 kWh/month) in an area that gets five peak sunlight hours per day would need 6,250 watts.
