How a Mobile Solar Bakery adds value to creating a direct solar economy
By baking muffins, cookies and many other popular products, a mobile solar bakery owner profits as much as R10 000 per month, while providing free electricity in the house. Hybrid solar oven technology, makes it possible to bake in temperatures as high as 180°C from the sun only. Going solar is an expensive exercise, but if it can pay for itself, while providing a household with a sizable daily income, it becomes a very attractive investment and social solution. Business partnerships, mentoring. electronic protection, vehicle tracking and insurance increase the success possibility of the bakery.
SunGeyza and SolaGeyza
It was the community efforts to heat up minimal quantities of water on a suffocating smoking fire, that made an everlasting impression on us. The only fuel source they can afford and readily have access to is wet wood from the surrounding environment.
Something had to be done – solar water heater for people without basic services
SunGenius solar water heaters, the SunGeyza™, as a part of our solar solutions for Africa, was specifically developed for people living in informal settlements. This patent pending solar water heater provides affordable and convenient running hot water either inside or outside the house, while cutting out wood, paraffin, gas and electricity for heating up water. Our dedication to find a practical solution paid off, as the SunGeyza™ can now be placed at almost any structure and provides the household with running hot water inside the house.
The SunGeyza will soon be available to the leisure market. It is a huge upgrade from the flimsy “Camp Shower” to a heavy duty solar camp shower appliance that will probably last a lifetime. Unique features being that the geyser is all round insulated, a 12v water pump can be put inside the geyser and the tap can be replaced if needed.
The SolaGeyza™ is currently being tested and heats up water while charging batteries at the same time. One device that provides up to 25 liters of running hot water and 40 watts of electrical power charging a battery for lights, small appliances and phones.
Our current small scale manufacturing plant also serves as a product development and research facility. The mass manufacturing plant for the Sun- and SolaGeyza is already in an advanced stage, which will ensure quality products to meet our warranty requirements.
