There’s never been a better time to go solar!
This is the last year for the 30% federal solar Investment
Tax Credit (ITC) for a solar power system. Then it will drop 4%
and be at 26% for 2020; this includes installations on both
residential and business properties – and may even include your
RV, if you can call that a second home. The federal tax credit
for all installations will end by the end of 2022.
The Importance of WATER...
You can live without a lot of things in the world, but water
isn’t one of them; clean potable water is running low or just
becoming unavailable in many parts of the world, including the
U.S. We’ve been engaged in solar water pumping for two decades,
and there’s been many changing technologies to address water
needs for residential use, and commercial endeavors such as
irrigation, livestock, fish farms and wildlife management. One
of the latest is to run a 240VAC pump array direct – that is, it
will run when the sun is shining, and requires a solar array but
no batteries. These will run a variety of pumps, 120/240V,
three-phase, and change a 1 or 2 speed motor pump to a soft
start. You can view information about this new technology at

Why energy efficiency is SO important.
The cheapest power is that which we do not use. https://nwenergy.org/ for more information!
We assisted Bryan & Shannon
Tarter of southeastern Montana in their system upgrade, adding
more solar modules
STAINLESS DOOR REFRIGERATOR FOR SMALL KITCHENS

instruct you. Beware of the affluence of gold that brings with
it the corruption of morals and the scorn of laws; beware of an
unbalanced distribution of wealth that will give rise to a small
number of opulent citizens and a horde of citizens in poverty, a
situation that will engender the insolence of some and the
