Foundations in place in Kenya

Renetech and the local Ecobora team is finalizing construction of the foundations for the off-grid Institutional Solar Stove system at a boarding school with 700 students in rural Kenya. Solar collectors heat large boilers, supported by heat storage units to permit cooking before sunrise and after sunset. To save cost and energy, the solar heat is transferred by gravity, avoiding the use of conventional pumps and electric power. The picture shows the team resting and celebrating after the work is done.
