Solar thermal cooking systems are efficient and hygienic for industrial/institutional canteens, religious places, community centers, etc. Volatile fuel costs and environmental concerns have compelled us to look for off-grid solar energy generation, which is cleaner and more sustainable.
Several organizations in India are successfully using solar thermal energy for cooking and industrial applications. Clique Solar, India’s first solar boiler company, recently installed an innovative solar cooking system at Akshardham temple in New Delhi.
Green Life solar boiler can assist in cooking food on a mass scale, occupying less space & providing an efficient output at the same time. As Green Life solar boiler can deliver temperatures as high as 300°C (thermic oil), it can be used in frying or baking chapatis, that require higher temperatures of around 250 °C
