There is a new innovative way to store food without using any energy. Its called the Groundfridge, a refrigerator that is stored underground and requires no energy at all. The temperature of it is determined by temperature of the soil and groundwater. It is 20 times the size of a regular refrigerator and can easily be installed, removed, and reinstalled. Root cellars aren’t a new invention by any means, but the Groundfridge looks well-built and relatively easy to install. Weighing in at 300 kg (661 lb), and measuring 2.28 m (7.48 ft) in diameter, the prefab cellar is built from hand-laminated polyester.
