Solar Panel over Fridge Vent

I have searched around but have not found any info or anyone that has installed a solar panel over the fridge vent. I have room for two more panels if I want to make some changes. One could go over the fridge vent seems the shield in front of it would need to get cut down some or it would need to be really elevated up.

The other option would be to modify / relocate the winstar. It really is to close to the AC and lower than it anyway.

I would be reluctant to install anything above the fridge vent. Might affect airflow required to keep your fridge operating efficiently.

I think it would be fine. Add some fans in the fridge bay to be safe.
