{{NewMay15}}'''May 2015: Solar heated water saves firewood''' - Inmates at the Davao City Jail have begun to use solar preheated water for cooking. Not directly solar cooking, but none the less, a type of [[integrated cooking]] that is saving [[fuelwood|firewood]]. By preheating the water, cooking time is reduced 20 - 30 minutes. The system was provided by the International Committee of the Red Cross. A guard said the facility used to have a truckload of firewood delivered three times a week.
