Solar de Villaseca Located south of Santiago, this restaurant has cooked with solar heat since 1989. In the past, many people cut trees for cooking fuel, a practice that led to desertification. To preserve forests, the University of Chile started a project to support solar ovens for restaurants in rural areas. At Solar de Villaseca, 10 solar ovens serve up to 70 people a day. In Chile, the sun shines 300 days a year!
