Energy Issues

While the smallest mini fridge keeps your sodas and snacks cold, the cost of running it may be nearly as much as a full-size refrigerator. A 1.7 cubic foot refrigerator uses 30 kWh per month, according to Silicon Valley Power. Meanwhile, the Energy Star rating on a 4.5 cubic foot refrigerator is 235 kWh per year, or nearly 20 kWh per month. When searching for a new mini refrigerator, look for the Energy Star rating to ensure that you're saving energy and money while keeping your food cold.
