Less than 0.6 kwh/day? Not bad, not bad at all! Thanks for sharing.

Some numbers from a thread I posted here in December:
Chest freezer, don't know the size but it isn't huge: 22 W-h (ambient temps 20-40F)
Fridge/freezer combo, average apartment size: 15 W-h (ambient temps 20-40F)
Fridge/freezer combo, average apartment size: 12 W-h (ambient temps teens-30F, same fridge as above)
Fridge/freezer combo, larger size w/ice maker: 51 W-h (15 feet from a wood stove running full blast, obviously this one is inside)
I made a note to re-run these tests, now that its summer.

If you have the 'stat set to 30 degrees F and the ambient temp is 20 degrees F, will it run backwards?

...... layed it on its back,elevated it and remoted the compressor to an upright position? would'nt it be great to have a chest freezer/refrigerator combo running only one compressor? there;s a canadian company building these dual purpose chest freezers (12volt danfoss units) but the price tag is around 3k.
could this be done??? thanks!

So, for the benefit of us who got sidetracked by beer comments, what was the final conclusion by the Original Poster?

(There are many people who post here expecting to save power in an off-grid situation by using a "small" refrigerator, as opposed to a large one)..from the first post. wondering what would the surge/draw would be from a battery bank? before the inverter.

Coot I did dig in this thread a bit, but didn't see it. How many amps starting is required for a late model energy star fridge/freezer? I see your old one was 5.5 amps. Any better these days?
