The Poor Man's Refrigerator--A fridge for the common man that does not require electricity and keeps food fresh too. With this basic parameter in mind Mansukhbhai came up with Mitticool, a fridge made of clay. It works on the principle of evaporation.

A very good blog article about the SunDanzer off-grid refrigerators and freezers. They run on a 12-volt battery that is powered by solar, wind or hydro. They draw very little energy and have impressive reviews. Something to consider for the homestead.
This manual will teach you how to convert wind and sun into electrical energy and to build your own energy devices at home, and how to do it very cheaply.
