An Overview: Welcome to the ISEC Forum!

Hello and Welcome!

The ISEC project was initiated in response to the environmental and humanitarian crisis caused by traditional woodfire cooking; our goal is to design and distribute a clean solar-powered method for everyday cooking, as an alternative to biomass. This technology is being developed by students at Cal Poly advised by Pete Schwartz, and by an international community of builders and users! This forum is intended to chronicle the development of the ISEC. Beyond allowing the developers of ISEC to communicate, this forum provides a new degree of transparency to any observers wishing to follow our journey. This forum was established October 10, 2021. Previously, we used this forum.
