Solar Powered Cool Room
Every workshop we run we hire a cool room. Because our farm runs on stand alone solar power, the hired cool room uses a generator - all weekend. In addition to chewing through the petrol, it is very noisy. And it is only available to us a couple of weeks a year. Yet a farm that kills its own meat and makes its own cheese needs its own cool room all the time. Domestic fridges just don't cut the mustard.
So we started thinking of how to build a solar powered cool room. We even had a think tank one workshop, which came up with some fantastic ideas. The cool room is still on the drawing board, but it is inching closer and closer to reality. See what plans we've come up with and offer some ideas of your own.
