Overall, I must say that this experiment is a sucess for me. Here is my current electric bill.
My new apartment is twice the size of my old one, yet I am using less energy.
The apartment is very well insulated, and I barely have to use the air conditioner despite the fact that we are in a drought with several weeks of 95* to 112* temperatures.
I use a low wattage fan ( 7 Watts ) in place of the A/C unless I become uncomfortable.
Currently it is 77* in my apartment, but I'm quite
comfortable with my fan.
I also use CFL lighting, and only when there is not enough light to see from the open blinds. I cook using a sandwich maker versus a stove to make the best use the heat.
I take it to the "extreme", and I just wanted to add this as sort of a disclaimer that this low of an electric bill is not purely the result of doing this fridge modification.
It certainly helps though. The lady at the power company said there was a huge dip in my power meter when I did this modification.
