Recently Slayed Freezers
The Zombie freezer slaying team has begun fighting the zombie takeover, by removing and replacing Zombie freezers with new energy efficient and energy saving models.
The most recent victory was in identifying a Cryo-Fridge C 390 as a Zombie freezer, which was hiding out in the Entomology Department on the UC Davis campus. When first approached the freezer was consuming energy at a drastic rate of 25.8 kWh/day. Fortunately the slayer team came prepared and, after warming the freezer to -50°C, reduced this massive consumption rate to 12.9 kWh/day.
