  •  Solar cookers (0+ / 0-)

    have been distributed for years by Solar Cookers International to help "people in fuel-scarce, sunny areas."

    •  and to refugee camps (0+ / 0-)

      Solar cooker kits to women in Africa, so firewood gathering trips are much reduced.

      "refugees in Iridimi camp have a simple solution — solar cookers. Refugees have already made and distributed several hundred solar cookers and plan to make thousands more, enough for all the families in the camp" (from solar cookers)

      I believe that small, distributedsources of electricity are vital and hope to read of more gadgets.

      Commuting is a waste of time and energy. Worse is trucking lettuce from the Imperial Valley of California to the Hudson River Valley of New York.
