At Pesitho we are committed to developing smart technology for people’s cooking needs powered by solar energy.


We have identified areas of concern and areas of improvement when it comes to traditional cooking styles, namely over open fires, and have developed a solution based approach where the ECOCA directly addresses issues that arise.



Deforestation, driven by the overuse of unsustainable wood fuel, is rapidly increasing worldwide. This not only harms air quality but also devastates biodiversity and wildlife.



The ECOCA addresses health risks from cooking with coal, wood, charcoal, and kerosene, which can lead to lung diseases like stroke, heart disease, COPD, and lung cancer due to smoke inhalation.

Smart Energy Storage


The ECOCA harnesses solar energy from user-provided panels, offering clean, low-maintenance, and reliable power for greater family independence and energy security.



Women typically handle cooking and wood fuel collection, which puts them at risk of dangers like animal attacks, landmines, kidnapping, assault, and domestic violence due to meal preparation constraints.

Carbon Footprint


Using wood, charcoal, and kerosene for cooking emits climate-changing pollutants like black carbon and methane, with black carbon’s warming impact often overlooked in safer wood-burning stoves.
