Australia has been hit with devastating wildfires. As of January 8, 2020, almost 800 homes were destroyed in the New Year. According to the state's Rural Fire Service, nearly 1,700 homes were destroyed in New South Wales alone.
Bushfires affected those on the grid by bringing down vital transmission lines; those off the grid who relied on solar panels or solar ovens were affected by days of heavy smoke haze.
Thankfully, there are resources available to ride out the fires even if the grid fails, or if there is too much smoke for solar oven or solar panels to work well. Here's how GoSun customer named Kerry who lives off the grid in Victoria, Australia (in an area not directly impacted by blazes but heavily impacted by smoke at times) has been able to weather these conditions, providing the comfort of hot food, using the Fusion (the first solar + electric oven to work off the grid).
