Members Are Building A Parabolic Solar Cooker!

Parabolic Solar Cooker Build

Every Saturday starting 5/20

4 PM at Generator

Generator members have voted and are joining forces to make future cookouts more exciting.  You can find their completed Parabolic Solar Cooker being demonstrated at the alternative energy cookout in July.

It’s perfect for my utilisation : it makes one liter of water boil in 15-20 minutes and cooks a meal for 3 people in something like 45-60 minutes on good days

The parabola is approximately 1.5 m wide and 50 cm deep. The larger the aperture size, the more powerful it becomes. It’s quite stiff as it is with the bamboo ring, but if you want to make it bigger, you’ll need to find some other ways to stiffen it.
