I have done diy battery recycling and trust me you don't want to do it.
Don't try to make your own solar panels. Home made ones like to catch on fire.
Yes just powering a fridge is expensive. With my solar hybrid generator $1000 bought enough solar panels, battery, charge controller and inverter to power my refrigerator while the sun is up and for a little while after sun set.
For about another $1000 I could double solar and battery capacity and power the fridge 24 hours a day.
