Back Us: Be Part Of The Clean Energy Revolution
We need your support to raise funds to commence production of SolSource Sport and help you step forward into the Age of Sunlight. In our previous successful Kickstarter, we helped thousands of families leave energy poverty and pollution behind. With SolSource Sport, we want you to be part of the Clean Energy Revolution. So back this project and make a difference!
How do I use SolSource Sport?
SolSource Sport is super easy to use - just point at the sun and start cooking! You can grill, boil, pan fry, reheat and stir fry. Because it heats up quickly, you can get your solar sizzle going in no time.
No special cookware is required - SolSource Sport is compatible with a wide range of camping and outdoor cookware. We have written an article to help you choose the right cookware.
And for packing SolSource Sport away? It takes no time - about 180 seconds. And the carrying case (not included) will fit easily in the trunk or back of the truck.
Can I cook in the wind or if it's cold outside?
Yes you can! We have tested SolSource Sport on a hill, in a valley the, and at the quayside. Be sure to send us pictures if you take SolSource Sport to Everest Base Camp!
Summer time is prime time for solar cooking. With those long summer days come long solar cooking hours. You'd be surprised how early you can start brewing your coffee in the morning, and how late you can cook your evening meal with SolSource Sport.

Risks and challenges
There are factors outside our control that may lead to shipping delays. In particular, customs processing for certain countries can be a lengthy process. We will do our best to communicate with you about the timelines related to delivery for your home country. Customers outside the US may experience delays or additional costs due to local import procedures, regulations, or fees.
Due to our desire to deliver high-quality products, we plan to prioritize strong quality control procedures on our production lines. If we see quality issues arising in our first production run, we may add extra time to the run in order to fix these issues so that we can ship products that meet our quality control standards and exceed the expectations of our customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
