  • Super Insulation can make this simpler in my opinion. I am in Africa a lot, about 3-4 months per year. By the way ,about 1/5 the planet lives off the grid. And, they have freezers, seldom have fridges. But I am going to do an experiment soon for what I see, or call "super insulation." I am going to measure electrical use for 30 days as they use normal. The add about 2 foot thick insulation around the sides. They are the same as Americans, they do not want things to look silly. Then make a night blanket about a food thick. This will cost about 15 USD because they use some form of grass to make beds, not normal, but normal for the off grid 1.5 billion. The off-grid are just in time eating....

Here is a too expensive, but great idea, using thermal mass, or the cooling of the earth method, very old tech, just forgotten, nothing new. There has been in the ground cellars for cooling since the beginning of time.
