San Francisco, California (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
Last year the GoSun solar cooking stove took KickStarter by storm. November 14-16 taste the results as GoSun (http://www.gosunstove.com) exhibits at Green Festival San Francisco, booth #638 in Fort Mason Center’s Herbst and Festival Pavilions. The portable solar stove is now available locally at Ship’s Store in Sausalito.
After 52 days on Kickstarter the tubular solar cooker raised over $200,000. Evacuated glass tubing gives the GoSun Stove a unique advantage. Even on cloudy days, the solar oven heats up to over 550°F to cook a meal for four in 20 minutes. Inventor Patrick Sherwin says the design captures over 80 percent of the sun’s rays that enter its reflectors. Even cooking at high temperatures the outside remains cool to the touch. The entire stove weighs under five pounds and folds with built-in handles for carrying or storing in a backpack.
For every five GoSun Sports purchased, the Cincinnati, Ohio based startup will train and equip a family in need with a GoSun model built for the developing world. Sherwin says over 150 stoves have been donated thanks to a $75,000 grant from the United Nations Foundation’s Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.
Green Festival San Francisco returns to Fort Mason Center for its 13th year and expects to attract more than 35,000 bay area residents. Admission is $15. Learn more at http://www.greenfestivals.org/sf.
