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
-- 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
