Solar ovens in South Africa.
Renewable energy innovations generally appeal to high-tech aspects of life, and can often be taken for granted. But in less-developed countries, people's relationship with energy is much different and power doesn't come with the flick of a switch...

Why aren't these solar ovens distributed in Africa? This would save the trees and the time needed by the women there to collect this wood.

I have used a solar oven for 20 years now. my sun oven has payed for itself many times over. The food is delicious and retains more vitamins because it is cooked at a lower temperature.

OK---but I live in Western Washington and we have mostly very gray rainy days. Not lots of sunshine.
