Of course you need a little electricity to run the fan (but very little), and you need to either buy the ice or have a deep freeze to make it.
You could use blue ice for this. Just have enough on hand that some can be in the freezer while you are using the others.

It's in the mid 90s up here. I leave my ac set to 72 during the day with the furnace fan set to on. Keeps the cool air flowing. I have a nice north exposure so sunlight isn't a big deal, but have blackout curtains on all my Windows except the kitchen.
Over budget and behind schedule...
That's how I roll :)
