My family loves this show. We all would love to see a challenge using solar energy,(i.e. solar oven, solar shower, etc..).

Solar projects have been suggested before, and seem to offer two drawbacks: One, if they tape in England, the sun is not always shining brightly (to be as diplomatic as possible about it); and Two- Solar devices in use are not exactly the Whizz-Bang Oh-Wow Wild Things you'd want to show for the big finish on a TV show. While building things is important, the comptetion needs to offer some visual excitment (read: speed, noise and potential catastrophe) to give the show a big finish people will want to watch.
