Polar King Mobile Refrigerated Trailer Approximate Energy Usage

Based upon an average annual runtime at approximately ten hours a day, we can approximate the cost of running the refrigeration system of $2.36 per day annually.

Trailers are usually used in warmer months, and the runtime is impacted by a variety of factors such as room temperature, ambient temperature, frequency of door opening, temperature of the product, etc. Because we determine the runtime as only when active cooling and defrosting is taking place, it isn’t running for 24 straight hours each day. Runtime will be between 8-12 hours. To get the estimated $2.36 cost, we use the following formula at $0.15 per kilowatt hour, and 10 hours a day: 

Energy Usage

1.57 x (kWh cost) x (hours run per day) = daily cost

(1.57 kW x $0.15/kWh x 10 h/day = $2.36/day)
