“Eight hundred SolSource Pro solar stoves were sold to the Chinese government late last year in western China and distributed to nomadic peoples and villagers in the province of Qinghai. Dozens of NGOs and governments are currently interested in distributing the SolSource Pro now too,” John B. Lindquist, Market Development Manager for One Earth Designs, explains.

Unlike the SolSource Pro, the SolSource Air will be geared toward recreational use right here in the United States. Engineered for the user to stand in a safe position away from any harmful rays, the Air’s durable materials and design ensures that it will stand up to harsh weather and last for a long time. Keep it in the backyard for pollution-free outdoor cooking or toss it in the RV for off-grid convenience while on the road.

One Earth Designs told us that they are also working on a new line of products to use in tandem with the SolSource, including devices that will harness the power of solar to generate electricity, store energy for later, and serve as a source for other at-home appliances (for instance, running a heater or charging a cell phone). We’ll keep you updated!
