Hi folks. Hope all is well.

I am trying to buy a power generator to power my fridge etc in case of a power outage.

Before I do that, I need to first find how much watts my fridge needs to run on.

The fridge manual says that the fridge uses 531KWh per year. ( That is the only info that they provided )

I found that the fridge uses 1451.79 watts per day ( 531 KWh / 365 days).

Then I found that 1451.79 / 24 hours = 60.61 Watts

Is it okay to assume that the fridge uses on average 60.61 Watts of power every hour that it is connected to the power generator?

Thanks for the replies!
