Solar powered saunas have been available for quite a few years and are similar to infrared saunas except they use the power of the sun to generate electricity to run the ceramic heaters. Keep in mind that these types of saunas are not true saunas but heat therapy rooms which utilize radiant heat.  Sauna, by definition, is a dry heat bath with heated stones.

There is much debate over whether sauna rooms or infrared/radiant heat rooms are better.  This is a personal decision and I recommend you experience both types of rooms before you select a sauna type.
