Why Solar Cooking?

Three billion people in the world have no access to proper cooking facilities. Their only option for cooking is to burn wood, coal, kerosene or even garbage in open fires. This causes major health problems and kills over 4 million people every year, according to the World Health Organization. It also causes deforestation and major greenhouse gas emissions. Open fires are estimated to emit roughly the same amount of greenhouse gases as the total US emissions. Solar cooking, on the other hand, uses the energy of the sun to heat, cook or pasteurize food or drink.

Heliac Solar Cooker

The Heliac Solar Cooker is designed for high efficiency, easy use and super-fast pay-back time for the buyers.

The cooker is as powerful as traditional wood-burning stoves, boiling a liter of water in under 10 minutes. With no heavy mirrors to reflect the light, it is much lighter and therefore also easier to handle than any other efficient solar cooker. This makes it a perfect solution for cooking in many parts of the developing world.

Most importantly, the Heliac Solar Cooker is so low-cost that users can buy it for less than what they spend on charcoal in a single month.

The construction of the frame is so simple that it can be built locally, thereby generating local jobs. Organizations that wish to sponsor the foils can have their logo embedded as a hologram in the center of the foil.

The Heliac Solar Cooker is powered through a similar type of concentrator foil to our utility-scale solution.
