It’s finally SPRING! Although we still have an appreciable bunch of white stuff on the ground, we are at least having some decent warmer days and our hearts are grateful with the sunny prospects of the future. Our future garden plants are now seedlings on the windowsill. If you are ready to become your own power producer, or want back-up power for your critical loads, now is the time. Here’s our latest renewable energy and other news, along with some new products. There’s a 30% federal tax credit for all facets of investment in a solar power system, and if it’s time for you to make the leap, let us help. Have a very sunny spring!

Energy Star refrigerators give you the best electrical bang for the buck. This one is model number FFBF279SSX, and has a capacity of 14.6 cu.ft. It’s 67” x 27.6” and a depth of 26.75”, so it works well with traditional countertops. The doors are stainless steel with a gentle curve, with platinum sides, and it looks great in any kitchen. Using 1160 watt-hours a day (1.16kwh) will help keep your electricity dollars in your wallet! $1598 plus shipping. Call for more information if you are interested! 406-777-4309

And while (on our web pages) we tend to emphasize the more efficient products, we have access to many types of appliances, including restaurant supplies, ADA compliant models, over or under-counter refrigerators/freezers, beer/wine coolers, beer taps, induction cooktops, commercial refrigerators, stoves, outdoor kitchens, kitchenettes for apartments... If you have some specifics in your kitchen or business for a particular size or counter depth model of refrigerator or stove, let us know and we can likely find something to fill the bill! We buy from several reliable distributors. We also have non-electric gas refrigerators, freezers and stoves that require no electricity. Just let us know what you need. 406-777-4309

Harry S. Truman quote: Socialism is a scare word they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years. Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security. Socialism is what they called farm price supports. Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people.
