This is a research project attempting to create
a series of DIY Solar Ovens and end up with a model that is easy
to use and to make.
Being based in sunny California where the sun
shines an average of 331 days pr. year we are located in an area
with great potential for using the masses of energy the sun provides
constantly – energy that is free and doesn’t harm
This is the reason why we should take advantage of the solar
energy provided and use at as a free source for cooking food.
By using a DIY Solar Oven one is not dependent
upon privatised energy supply and it’s fun to use.
To build Solar Ovens with found materials
or materials that you would normally have in your household so
that it would be possible for almost anybody to build their own
DIY Solar Oven. (Check out the dumpster dive in "versions")
This project was initiated for the Free Soil
bus tour at the ISEA festival in San José Aug. 2006 as
one project amongst many.The designs of the Solar Ovens are inspired
by already existing designs that has been developed throughout
the last 30 years.
Our goal is to distribute the idea of using
the solar energy for cooking with Solar Ovens and to make a downloadable
PDF template that is easy to use and make.
