Engineers without Borders visit Nyegina to select solar heated stove

Partner organization update: In August 2011, the Northern Illinois chapter of Engineers without Borders made another onsite visit to gather information for the design of a more energy efficient cooking system that would reduce the fuel consumption. After review of the findings they chose to install the Lion Stove which is designed to be energy efficient and a Solar Thermal Water Heater which uses solar power instead of wood to heat water. Both the stove and the water heater system are designed to be low maintenance and self-sustaining. Local maintenance workers will be instructed on upkeep. A group of EWB students will travel to the Nyegina campus in January 2012 to install the stove and water heater system.
