Living with Solar Course

The next one is to be held in Nimbin on 27th & 28th May 2006. This course is mainly designed for the homeowner wanting to learn more about their solar system and how to look after it.

2D Light - 24V

We now have a 2D light in an attractive fitting. It is not economical, however it is a high quality one made in the UK. The catalogue number is LYF-236.

Savour the Planet

by Bob Dooley (for Nimbin GoodTimes)

Rainbow Power Company has just taken delivery of 120 solar cookers from India. They have three different models. One is a 1-metre dish cooker; the other two are box cookers of different sizes. The previous small shipment had been a test and sold out fast. The first 16 of this new shipment have already left for PNG.

Though there are millions of these cookers in use in India and all over the third world, it is believed RPC is the only distributor of this technology in Australia. Their efficiency has been tested and proven over many years, indeed one ashram in India feeds all their 15,000 devotees entirely on solar. That's 45,000 meals per day. In this instance they use solar to make steam.

And what about the food? The nutritional advantages of slow cooking have long been recognised, with all the flavours, vitamins and minerals kept in. As the food can´t over-cook there is no need to stir or watch it. Saving time energy and pollution. Simply put the food in the pots, point the cooker at the sun and come back in two or three hours for a delicious and healthy meal.

The concept of the parabolic reflector to concentrate the sun´s rays was developed aeons ago, and the age-old design is very simple to assemble. The box cookers are ready to use straight from the box and come complete with stainless steel cooking pots.

Remember there's only 120 of them in this shipment. Bon Appetit.

Cheers from Dave and all the RPC crew.
