Problem: Energy is being used on freezers and refrigerators that could be eliminated through the use of a cold storage alternative.

Solution: Alternative techniques can be utilized to reduce cold storage costs. For example, room temperature storage is available for free or low-cost trials.

Benefits: Even if only one or two freezers can be eliminated, this saves 2-4 kWh per day or 700-1400 kWh per year. That is a savings of $85-170 per year per freezer.

Costs: There may be time investments in researching what alternative method works best for your research.
