Solar 1000 Design.

I am aware that the Solar Stoves we built in Peru were quite small (0.4 m2) and possibly not sufficiently large enough to cook for the Peruvian sized families. Next time I shall take a larger suitcase to fit bigger sheets of aluminium or source the material locally. Detailed below are drawings and downloads of the Solar 1000 design. This design is based on solar area of 1 m2 that equates to approximately 1000 Watts of solar energy (2.5 time the heat of our Peruvian stove). Each rib is 0.1 m apart and 11 ribs are required to make the shape (including the two wooden ends). Each rib has a different radius depending on its location.
