News and recent developments
- January 2015: UNES reports that monitoring has shown that th cardboard CooKit solar panel cookers they had been distributing at a subsidized price were hardly being used. They believe this is due to difficulties in changing cultural practices. They believe that parabolic solar cookers would be more suitable, but these are not affordable by average Salvadorians. For the time being, they include mention of solar cooking in their educational outreach and they continue to experiment with one parabolic solar cooker that they have purchased.
