I didn’t have enough money or panels for a SunFrost in 1998, so went with a Servel propane. It had a small dent and was marked down. Some cleaning and maintenance, 1.1 lbs. of propane per day(vented to attic), 8 cu. ft. with 1.1 being the freezer.

The electric is off except when in use. Our well pump is 220VAC and is set for 30-50psi with a 10 gallon pressure tank. DR2424s set for 4 watts to come on.

We refrigerate what needs it. Winter gives us extra freezers outside (coolers).

Earthship, year around fresh vegetables.
