Founder & CEO

Patrick Sherwin

“GoSun creates innovative products that encourage fun, resilience and independence. We are passionate about our products and how they power our customers’ lives. Founded in a small suburban garage in Cincinnati, Ohio, we grew quickly thanks to our community of committed customers and shareholders, who not only believe in our products, but also use them to bring people together.”

Portable power to the people.

Although GoSun is still a small entrepreneurial business, we believe we should all do what we can, when we can. Since our inception, we've worked with dozens of nonprofit organizations to provide discounted solar cookers and other solar products to those that need them most.

A solar future

GoSun has provided funding to support the efforts of the California Fire Foundation, The Houston Food Bank, Global Giving, and Operation BBQ Relief. We have made donations to The American Red Cross and World Central Kitchen to assist in Hurricane Florence relief efforts and to the California Community Wildfire Relief Fund.

Empowering others

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 a 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.
