GREETINGS FROM OUR SOLAR POWERED OFFICE: While our winter was not as cold as usual (there were no weeks of -20 to -40 below at nights!), we have had decent snow pack in the mountains, and hope our summer will not be too fiery and smoky from forest fires. Solar water pumping has really taken off for us, and we are happy to have provided water for families, drip irrigation, fisheries and livestock. Renewable energy systems are our focus, for remote homes, utility-tied residences, water pumping, RV, back-up or marine use. We offer complete systems to fit your project’s needs. If you want to do something to make your home or business ‘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 on disc for $10 ($18 out of country)—essential for your energy library! Products, system sizing, pricing, components, importance of energy efficient 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 -- and e-mail us to get on our e-list.
To assist your information input, we’ve tried to develop as much on-line information as we can. For solar water pumping, see www.PVsolarpumps.com; for utility-tied photovoltaic systems, visit www.grid-tie.com; for efficient AC appliances, DC ’fridges, coolers and freezers see www.eco-fridge.com; for natural and LP gas appliances, see www.LPappliances.com. Our main index page is www.oasismontana.com and we now offer composting toilets at www.eco-potty.com. Visit our web pages and stay a while!
