The founder’s goal is to help preserve Morocco’s forests, which are vanishing at a rate of 30,000 hectares per year. His second goal is to reduce the cost of fuel for Moroccan families who buy PG, since the Moroccan government has recently announced that it will end subsidies for cooking gas. P-Solar’s website notes that Moroccan women and girls in the High Atlas spend half their days gathering wood instead of attending school or tending to household chores.

The History of Solar Cooking in Morocco

The Ministry of Energy and Mines of Morocco became interested in solar cooking through involvement of an employee, Touria Dafrallah, the recipient of an award for one year of study in the United States under the auspices of the Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Program. She studied at Cornell during that year, and came to know of solar cooking.

During a practicum period spent in Washington, D.C., Touria spent a share of her time working with Solar Household Energy, Inc., becoming a proficient cook and conferring with SHE personnel on establishing a project in Morocco.

Upon her return to Morocco, Touria began to lay the groundwork for a project. Experienced project staffs associated with the French NGO INTI were made available to work with her in planning and piloting the project. The device chosen was the ULOG type box cooker, used in INTI projects in other countries. It could be made in Morocco. Morocco was also interested in learning more about, and perhaps acquiring a large solar cooker called the Villager, a product of Sun Ovens International and Rotary International.

The latest reports of progress in Morocco indicate that work continues on the project but with slow progress.
