Electrical reliability in Chicxulub Puerto is fair, but it can be off for extended periods. La comisión tarifa 1B allows me a whopping 400kWh monthly average consumption, so I am looking for a more reliable way to refrigerate my food and shed some electrical load at the same time.
Growing up on the farm, we had a 1940's Servel gas absorbsion refrigerator that was extremely economical, required electricity only for the bulb inside and was stone silent. I am considering the possibility of one of the newer absorbsion refrigerators and perhaps a freezer, as well.
I know they are rare and expensive to buy. The Amish build the CrystalCold and there is another built in China called the FrigiGas, as well as various refrigerators built for the RV market. If anyone knows of a gas refrigerator that is available in Mexico, I'm all ears. Does anyone on the forum use absorbsion refrigeration?
