Refrigerators are very important especially in prolonging the shelf life of food, and making certain food stuff and beverages more palatable.

The website Knowledge Weighs Nothing shared a DIY project on how to make an electric efficient refrigerator at home. Build Safe

This could save you a huge amount of money, but also, this DIY chest refrigerator is so low powered, it could easily be run via small low cost solar system. Even if you don’t have an old chest freezer, these can be picked up for next to nothing if you ask around.”
