High Performance Solar Oven switches to an Ultra Energy Efficient Oven when cloudy or at night.
January 17th, 2014. Waterloo, NY – As the price of gas continues to soar, solar energy becomes an attainable reality even in the kitchen. Sun BD Corporation, a company founded by a pioneer of solar cooking in the United States has launched the next generation solar oven on Kickstarter http://kck.st/1a1B9nK. Its Founder, David Chalker, has been educating people across the country including an invitation to the Pentagon, where he gave a working demonstration of the Sun Focus Solar Oven. The Next Generation Solar Oven will offer a multifunctional oven that can work with the sun as a high performance solar oven and without sun it transforms into an electric oven with a max temperature of 300F. Oven is large enough to bake bread or pizzas and roasts.
