On 10 April 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
In this sunny part of Kenya (Busia County), solar cookers -- which trap sunlight to heat food -- have surged in popularity in recent years. But a big problem remains: How to cook when the sun doesn't shine? Communities are now starting to sort out solutions . . . In Busia County, in western Kenya, as many as 1,500 households have turned to solar cooking, mostly over the last four years, according to county Ministry of Energy figures. The switch to more efficient cooking aims to cut deforestation in Kenya, and health problems related to cooking over smoky fires. Those who have bought the new systems say another attraction is that they require only about a third of the usual time to cook food or heat water -- a big savings of women's time.
