The famous Engel compressors are now even quieter and more efficient than their predecessors. All units come with a one year manufacturer’s warranty. To date over three million units have been sold world-wide. Six models are available that offer 15 quart to 65 quart capacity. See www.eco-fridge.com/engel.html for information about other makes and models. These tough units are well suited for campers, RVers, hunters, and marine use.

WIND POWER IN MONTANA (Framingham, MA, 5/1/02, reprinted from Solar Access.com) Executive VP of Ameresco Inc., Doug Barba, has announced that over nine months of research at their wind energy site in Cut Bank, Montana, has confirmed the commercial viability of a major wind installation there. "It’s better than we thought in terms of velocity and consistency. We also found that our site will generate power at the time that Montanans need it the most. We have the best wind during daylight hours in the coldest months," Barba said. "This will justify an investment of over $150,000,000 in a Montana wind project by our company."

Ameresco, the 99% owner of Montana Wind Harness, is evaluating the wind potential of other sites in Montana. The evaluation process involves erecting 150 ft. towers with anemometers at each site; these instruments give cumulative data about the wind speed, direction and duration.

Montana Wind Harness has a contract with Northwestern Energy (formerly Montana Power Company) to develop 150 MW of wind power in three major sites in Montana. Said Barba, "European countries committed to wind power in a major way about 20 years ago. Over the years, they have pushed the technology from small machines to the graceful giants that we are installing here in Montana. Wind has now become the fastest growing energy segment in Europe."

"This will justify an investment of over $150,000,000 in a Montana wind project by our company."
