It's hardware where teh power saving will be made.
I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice for solar to be more viable but I wouldn;t want my fridge/freezer turning off at night.
Odd that their pricing system is quite so unstable.
Hell will freeze over first. UK latitude makes solar power here a joke.
Restricted mainly to lashings of hot water in mid summer just a handful
of truly sunny days. Solar PV in the UK at >50N isn't cost effective.
Solar PV makes sense in hot sunny low latitude semitropical countries
where there is a huge peak in aircon demand in the mid to late
afternoon. Putting solar panels on a roof also slows heat ingress by
shading it as an added benefit.
They used crushed ice and salt when they wanted to freeze things. The
ice stored was from frozen natural pond water so never used directly.
It was more the principle of being able to hold temperatures well below
ambient for months on end without power that I was alluding to. It
certainly wouldn't be beyond modern technology to build freezers that
were intended to be powered for only a few hours a day.
Yes I appreciate that. My point was that as long as you run the system
at freezing point it is 80 times as effective as a hot water bottle (not
strictly a valid sum, but I hope you see what I mean). But if you try to
run it as a *freezer* by adding salt, you use up the latent heat much
Going back to TNP's point, I wonder what the planners would make of an
application claiming that 3 metres of stone met the required U value.
