All Season Solar Cooker

The All Season Solar Cooker

Since 2008 inventor Jim La Joie has built and shipped the All Season Solar Cooker to interested solar cooking agencies. Cookers have been sent to The Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Japan, Niger, Mexico, Haiti, Micronesia, Madagascar and most recently, to the Indian alternative energy agency PRINCE. In several of these locations they will be used as a means to create jobs and provide a source for cooking and safe water.

Through his website  , Jim has reached out to 133 countries around the world. Visitors may view instructional videos, free plans and instructions for both the All Season Solar Cooker and the new Jumbo ASSC.

Jim La Joie participates in the San Diego Solar Cooking Club meetup group which offers demonstrations and instructional workshops several times a year.

Although the web has been an oustanding outreach tool, it remains Jim La Joie's sincere hope that nonprofit organizations will use this invention to provide safe water, clean cooking, and economic opportunity to those in need.

We have 303 members registered at our website http://www.meetup.com/cooking-532/. Solar cooking demonstrations are offered at community green events (SanTree fest in Santee, Sustain LaMesa, San Diego Earth Day, and local schools. The building workshops involve from 10 to 20 students each building an All Season Solar Cooker for their personal use. During 2012 other like-minded groups became interested in the All Season Solar Cooker and have established links to the website and have begun conducting workshops of their own, using plans and information from the website. Group member Jim La Joie continues his outreach efforts via website http://www.allseasonsolarcooker.com, contacting users in over 140 different countries this past year. Most recently he donated cookers to a sustainability project in the dry forests of northern Peru.
