Evaporative cooling is great (low cost) but it requires a VERY dry climate.

Excellent point ! I remember reading somewhere that a person set up there house in FL so that one bedroom was sort of an emergency shelter for after hurricanes when the power was out. Window A/C, small refrigerator, Internet, TV, cable AND OTA antenna all capable of being run off of a 2000W inverter generator.
