Patrick's Story

After a long morning disassembling a solar water heating device, GoSun founder and solar energy expert, Patrick Sherwin, realized that the vacuum tubes sitting next to him might be able to reheat his lunch. When the food came out hot and roasted, it was an epiphany. Having lived extensively off the grid and working on solar energy projects around the world, he knew that he was on to something.

While volunteering with non-profits in Haiti and Latin America, Patrick experienced first-hand the vulnerability of energy poverty. Touched by the resilience and happiness of those living on just $2.00/day, he spent years facilitating technology, energy and social innovations in the developing world. These efforts, including many failures to introduce typical solar ovens, led to the realization that his solar hot dog cooker invention could be something more, serving a great need in emerging markets.

Dual Business Model

GoSun’s business model has two distinct initiatives: GoSun Stove and GoSun Global, with different strategies, product offerings and markets sharing the same basic technology.  Join our newsletter (bottom of page) or email: support@gosunstove.com to join the movement.  

Addressing Global Warming 

We believe our breakthrough solar ovens can help combat global warming by significantly cutting back on the use of fossil fuels. To ensure that our “footprint” is emission-free, all the way back to the manufacture of our ovens, we plant 20 trees for every GoSun Stove sold, with the help of our partners at Trees for the Future

GoSun Trees For The Future Tree Planting

 GoSun has helped to plant over 10,000 trees since 2013.
