Evaptainers decouples refrigeration from electricity to help rural farms and families | TechCrunch

Won't work in Southern Lousiana...but I like the idea!

Evaptainers decouples refrigeration from electricity to help rural farms and families | TechCrunch: "Taylor said, “As we sweat, water molecules draw heat out of our bodies to go through a phase-change, and evaporate. As that happens we cool down. This machine has water in a tank, and permeable membranes that deliver water to evaporative walls.” Each unit of the company’s newest EV-8-model refrigerators requires about 1/3 of a liter of water to operate per day in a place that’s got less than 65 percent humidity on a hot day. They can store 60 liters, about 5 gallons of milk, and chill contents by about 35 degrees Fahrenheit from the ambient air temperature."
