It puzzles me that the makers of the 12V refrigerators and freezers don't have to provide one of those yellow Energy Guide stickers like other appliance makers do. Their info on the web says how many watts it uses, but this does NOT help me estimate how much solar panel or battery I need to run one. If it uses 90 watts when running, how often does it run and for how long? Why can't you give me the annual kWh number that "real" appliances do? Or even how many watts it uses in one day? I can at least extrapolate that the "real" mini-fridge I'm looking at that uses 274 kWh per year according to the Energy Guide sticker uses (274000 watts divided by 365 days) 750 watts per day. End gripe. Mumble.
In other energy news, I got myself a geeky new internet connected LED LCD TV that uses half as much power as my old one. It's a really fun gadget; even though I don't have cable and there is no chance of pulling any TV stations with an antenna (they're all in Atlanta), I'm keeping entertained with lots of Netflix and the novelty of checking facebook and the weather on the TV :)
