Why We Need Decentralized Power More Than Ever

Why We Need Decentralized Power More Than Ever

America's aging centralized power grid has creaked and groaned for decades, but in California it has threatened to break completely. It now has to resort to rolling blackouts to keep from overloading its electrical systems.

We at GoSun believe the answer to this problem through decentralizing power generation by using personal solar devices (especially our Solar Kitchen, which lets you cook, cool, and charge anywhere, anytime)

But first, let's take a closer look at what is happening in California. Here's what the Sacramento Bee has to say:

For more than three hours, amid 100-degree weather in much of the state, hundreds of thousands of Californians were subjected to one-hour blackouts designed to keep the electricity grid from completely melting down. It marked the first rolling blackouts in California since the 2001 energy crisis, when the state was victimized by rogue energy traders from Enron Corp. and other companies that withheld power to jack up prices...

The grid was hampered in part because two big power plants couldn’t deliver any juice, including one that “tripped offline” unexpectedly late in the day.

We want to be part of a solution that keeps rolling blackouts from happening or at least give people the power to not be at the mercy of a failing electrical grid.

With that in mind, GoSun has put together the Solar Kitchen, its biggest bundled ever. Stay cool with the ice-free Chilland cook with the fuel-free Fusion. Power both and charge your devices with the SolarTable 60.

The kitchen set is spry. It weighs only 28 pounds, less than an average high schooler’s backpack. The dimensions aren’t much larger than that. The three items are 23.5’’ by 19’’ by 16.” If you need electricity to charge the Chill or Fusion, the cable is 7 feet long.


Let’s break down the total weight and size into its constituent elements. The Fusion is 18.5 pounds and is 48’’ x 28’’ x 19-27’’. The Powerbank is 2.2 pounds and sizes in at 6.9’’ x 4.2’’ x1.7’’.


GoSun has thrown in plenty of accessories with the Solar Kitchen to make it easy to charge every appliance and bundle it all together when you’re ready to move. Each set comes with the following:

  • 12 V AC adapter power cord for the Chill
  • 2 Bungee 3 cords
  • Fusion cooking tray
  • Power cord
  • Solar dial
  • User’s manual

The GoSun Solar Kitchen is the perfect all-in-one package for living off-grid. Do you want to cook a meal? You have the Fusion. Do you want to keep your food and drink cool? You have the Chill. Do you want to charge your phone and use the Chill and Fusion at night? You have the Powerbank. Do you want an elevated surface or a shade for your Chill? You have the SolarTable. Want portability and a cheap price for all these things? The Solar Kitchen is right for you.
