Oasis Montana Fall 2005 Newsletter
Intro and Index page

Greetings from Oasis Montana! It's been cold and rainy for few days at this writing, but we've had a marvelous summer in western Montana; we had a couple of smoky weeks due to forest fires, but none close or threatening. In spite of late frosts this past spring, our plants are full of apples and plums, and if the raccoons are merciful, we'll even have a good grape crop. We've made 28 gallons of sweet cider (so far) with our apple press, and have plenty more apples to go. Click here for some pictures of our 'oasis' here in the Bitterroot Valley. 

We are here to help power your remote or utility-tied home, provide back-up electricity for emergencies, grid-tie power equipment, UPS systems, solar water pumping, or just keep your RV or boat’s batteries fully charged. We offer complete systems to fit your project’s needs. If you want to do something to make your home ‘greener’ give us a call. We also offer a line of efficient electric and gas appliances to help keep a lid on your electric bill. 

For those of you who aren’t “on line”, or are beginning your project, we have an extremely informative Product Catalog and design information for ten dollars ($18 out of country)—essential for your energy library! Products, system sizing, pricing, components, energy efficient and LP appliances, battery care, and wind turbines are just some of the topics covered.

If you are on-line, you can see example systems (costs, components and power output) at www.oasismontana.com/systems.html

To assist your information input, we’ve tried to develop as much on-line information as we can. For information on solar water pumping, see www.PVsolarpumps.com; for utility-tied photovoltaic systems, with and without batteries, see www.grid-tie.com; for efficient AC appliances, DC ’fridges, coolers and freezers see www.eco-fridge.com; for natural and propane gas appliances, check out www.LPappliances.com. Our main index page is www.oasismontana.com. We have a great deal of information on our web sites—please feel free to visit and stay a while!
