Staber 2300
Energy Saving Appliances
You need long-term vision to consider buying the new super energy
efficient appliances. They cost more than conventional versions you find
at local stores. Justify the higher cost by calculating the energy savings
per year. Of course, if you’re producing your own power or plan to in
the future, the break-even point is much closer or even immediate
(smaller inverter, fewer solar modules, etc.). If you add the benefit to the
environment and our natural resources, the advantage is always
immediate (and some communities now offer big rebates).
Equator Washer/Dryer
Now ventless—Washes and dries in the same
energy and water efficient machine!
Save space, water, power, money, time,
and work! Time and work because you
don’t have to transfer clothes from
washer to dryer, water and power
because of the efficient front-loading
design (only uses 9.4 gallons per cu.ft.),
space because it takes 40% less room
than a typical washer and dryer, money
because of the energy savings and not
needing to buy a dryer. Winner of
numerous awards including the
Appliance Manufacturer Award for
Excellence in Designs, it uses

1300 watt heating element. 33"

Standard 1-year warranty (parts & labor).
The convenience of top-loading with the
efficiency of horizontal, tumble-action. 66%
less water and 75% less detergent. Asko
washing machines are great but require
220V, utility power or a sine wave inverter.
The Staber will work on an 800+ watt
modified sine wave inverter, a 500 watt
Exeltech, or on 117V. They still only
use a maximum of 21 gallons per
load and as little as 200 watthours per load while powering
more water through clothes for
cleaner laundry. Stainless steel

Super energy and water saving,
117V, runs on small inverter
New larger capacity—matches any top-loader (15 towels and most king-size
comforters). Super Quick Wash cycle will clean better than an old-style
agitator and do it in only 34 minutes while using only 5.7 gallons of water
and 0.3 (2¢) kWh of electricity. The smaller exterior allows for more
convenient installations under counters or stacked in closets. Additional
wiring unnecessary to accommodate this 220 volt unit because it plugs into
the back of an ASKO dryer. Feature differences between models revolve
mainly around spin speeds and controls. Higher spin speeds reduce drying
time and adjust up to 1000 rpm for the W600, up to 1200 for the W620, 1400
for the W640, and 1600 for the W660. All but the W600 have “delay start”,
the two high end models let you interrupt a cycle and add an option,
“EasyControl,” one-touch command for the four most popular programs, and
an abundance of special options. 20-year life expectancy , 152-176 lbs., 33

Danby Twin Tub Washer
Equator Energy-Star Washer/Dryer
Another all-in-one washer and dryer from Equator. Like the EZ3600C, this
unit features the convenience of one appliance for your whole laundry cycle.
Super efficiency and Energy Star rated. It also adds to the EZ3600 features:
• An extra wash option (part of regular wash)
• Improved control panel markings
• Additional button for half load option
• 3 wash/rinse options (hot/cold, warm/cold, cold/cold)
Super low power and water use—only 360 watts for
the wash and 150 watts for the 1600 RPM
adjustable-spin tub extractor (6 watts per minute—
you need about 14 minutes for heavy items and only
about 5 for light ones. Uses 36 liters of water per
load—less than 10 gallons! Quick connect for attaching to sink faucet
and holds 11 lbs. of clothes. 115V AC, 33.5" H x 29" W x 18.3" D, 70.4 lbs.

Equator Adapter for
Modified Sine-Wave Inverters
Clean clothes in 2 minutes
As far as we know, none of the super energy efficient washing machines
other than Staber will work on modified sine wave inverters. This easy-toexchange electronic module turns any of the Equators into a modified sine
wave machine. Just slide the old module out and return as an exchange.
#AA6093 $85
Unique pressure system causes hot water to heat
trapped air. The air then expands further
increasing pressure that forces water and soap at
high speed through fabrics. You get a super
clean wash with a tiny amount of detergent and
without using any electricity. Holds up to 4.8 lbs
of clothing and only weighs 6 lbs. Small size (11"
x 14") makes it easily portable. We’re told it’s
great as a butter churn, too!
Dyna Jet Wringer for Hand Washers
Frigidaire Gas Dryer
Simplify hand washing your laundry
4 temps 3 time/1 auto cycle
This hand wringer clamps to
washtub and features two spring
loaded press rollers to extract most
of the water from your clothes.
Compatible with the James Hand Washer. More durable than
the James Wringer but doesn’t squeeze out as much water. Made
to last many years even in a commercial application.
A perfect companion to the Frigidaire Washer (AA5514). Four temperature
selections, 3 timed and 1 auto cycle. Tumbling action reverses for more even
drying and fewer wrinkles. Large opening, reversible door lets you match the
dryer to your laundry room. Stackable with the Frigidaire Washer. Requires
220 vac, 4500 watts. Warranty 2 years.

Free heat from your clothes dryer
James Hand Washer
An operating clothes dryer produces enough hot
humidified air to keep a 30' x 24' room warm (20,000
BTU’s per hour). Just flip a lever on the Deflect-o and
this heat goes into your house instead of up the vent. Easy to clean screen
stops lint but lets the heat and humidity go through. Easy to install in just a
few minutes. Also good as year-round lint trap where outside venting not
To most people, washing clothes by hand sounds
like a ridiculous amount of work. Actually,
with a James Washer, it's not that hard. The
secret is letting the clothes soak in hot soapy
water for a few hours first. Then just a few
minutes of swishing the lever back and forth
does a great job. You can wash a normal-size
load and the sturdy design assures many
years of clean clothes without wasting
electricity. Holds 16 gallons, easy bottom
drain valve, pine legs. The optional
handwringer squeezes out 90% of the water.
Stainless steel.
Low Suds Detergent
Specially designed for horizontal axis washing
Horizontal, low water use washing machines work on a
different principle than conventional machines and
have special detergent needs. Common detergents
create too many suds, don’t dissolve well, and can damage
machines. This new low-sudsing brand was specially formulated for
horizontal axis washers. It easily dissolves in either cold or hot water and
doesn’t harm stainless steel drums. Fragrance and phosphate free, 100%
biodegradable and super concentrated. 4-pack (3.6 kg) good for up to 160
Speed Queen Wringer Washer
115 vac
When Speed Queen stopped making this
popular wringer washer 5 years ago, we had
many disappointed customers. It gets clothes
clean and dry with minimal power use , holds a
full 14 lbs. of clothes, and the double-walled
porcelain tub keeps water warm longer.
Wringer has 8 different positions and instantly
releases with safety bar or emergency release.
Gas powered model uses 2 HP B & S engine
with solid state ignition and operates at just
above idle, reducing wear-and-tear and

Accordion Laundry Racks
Gas Dryers
Save huge amounts of electricity
Electric heating—for clothes, air or water—uses
ridiculous amounts of power. Completely
unrealistic in a renewable energy system, it
doesn’t make sense in a grid-connected house
either. The gas dryers listed here immediately
pay for themselves in solar module savings and
quickly pay for themselves in AC grid-power
savings. 300–400 watts.
1 Time/1 Auto Cycle: 2 Temps
3 Time/1 Auto Cycle: 4 Temps
4 Time/3 Auto Cycle: 4 Temps
The average electric clothes dryer
uses $70 of electricity each year—more than the average electric range and
almost as much as the total household’s lighting ($75/year). Why not use the
sun? It’s easier on the clothes, the environment, and your pocketbook! Here
in Colorado, our clothes dry inside in just a few hours. Laundry racks fold up
into a small space, hold a “clothesline” of laundry, and easily move from
space to space—put outside in the sun, bring back in when it rains. All much
stronger and durable than the commonly found versions, our regular dryer
has wire reinforced stress points and the “Heavy Duty” versions attach the
dowels to the frame with screws instead of staples, hardwood frames, and
extra struts for added support. The “Wall Mount” doesn’t take any floor
space and has a strong shelf great for holding detergent and other laundry

“Beyond Organic” Coffee and Roaster
Shade-grown, organic, rainforest-friendly, and most likely the best tasting
coffee you will ever sip packaged with a Precision Roaster and 2.5 oz. grinder.
Includes 4 lbs. of green coffee beans processed with solar thermal and solar
electric systems in Costa Rica. This coffee is part of an initiative to trade Green
Coffee for Green Technology as well as provide education, telemedicine for
healthcare, telebanking to facilitate needed financing, and other services for
rural communities in developing countries. The goal is to set up Centers
powered by low-cost and environmentally-friendly solar-photovoltaic and
renewable-power generation systems. These centers will help empower rural
coffee farmers to become an economic engine in their regions, create local jobs
and rural prosperity. A primary benefit will be the slowing or reversing of
migration by the rural poor to the urban centers of developing countries.
Coffee is the world’s second most popular beverage (after water), the second
most traded commodity (after oil), and the second biggest cause of rainforest
destruction (after cattle ranching). Solar drying means shorter, on-site drying as
a lower temperature - 122°F instad of the conventional 158°F. It minimizes
deterioration and spoilage from excessive moistue and can save up to 30% of
the harvest. It eliminates the need for firewood and helps stop deforestration 16,000 acres of rainforest are stripped away for this purpose each year. It also
eliminates the need for the chemical fertilizer and pesticides that end up further
polluting water supplies and rivers. It provides more value to the small farmers
because dried beans sell for many times more and permits storage instead of
the need to sell within a few days of harvesting - a great poverty-reduction
strategy. This creates more jobs in rural areas preventing the increasing and
disasterous trend urbanization. Coffee goes stale within 7 days of roasting
making it more acidic with a more sour, bitter taste.
Brown Gas Ranges
Many people want a gas stove to conserve electricity but most gas stoves use
an energy-hungry electric starting system. Brown ranges have optional low
power use electronic ignitions (+c.$50) but the models we list here have
pilots and require no electricity at all. Conventional appearance and
features—non-tilt oven racks, push to turn valves, leg levelers, fiberglass

Precision Coffee Roaster
Premier Gas Ranges
The best home coffee-roasting product available at any price. Roasts enough
beans to fill a standard 12-cup automatic-drip coffee maker and only takes 9-10
minutes. Roasting just prior to brewing ensures the ultimate flavor. Set the
degree of roasting anywhere between light “Cinnamon” and dark, almost
burned “Italian”. Uses a heated, forced air process that bounces the beans
around inside the clear cylinder - a delightful sight and smell. A red light
indicates roasting, a green one the cooling process. It also separates out the
coffee chaff that makes a great nutrient for house plants.
No glow bars on any Premier Gas Ranges!
Light with electronic spark or with a match
and save the energy drain - no electricity
required. Allows oven and top burners to be
lit during power failure. Features universal
valves for easy conversion between natural
gas and LP gas (propane) without additional
parts or special tools. Sealed burners keep
spills on the cooktop for easy cleanup.
Lifetime warranty. 28 models available - the 4

Wheat Grass Juicer
Waring 12V Blender
One of nature's most complete live foods, wheat
grass contains vitamins C, E, the B complex
and Provitamin A (Carotene), and more than
100 elements and trace minerals, including
calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron.
Because the chlorophyll in wheat grass is
almost identical to human hemoglobin
(the medium by which oxygen is carried to
the cells), our bodies are able to easily
assimilate these nutrients. Our top-feed
Wheat Grass Juicer features a powerful
220-watt motor for maximum juice yield
and is also great for juicing leafy greens,
berries and soft fruits. Aluminum-free, it features
non-toxic nylon and stainless steel juicing components.

Similar to Sun Frost with the compressor mounted on the top and 4" of
insulation, the SolarFridge ships much more quickly and has several extra
features like an LCD temperature control and display. Other standard
features include an ABS inner liner, molded door shelves, stainless steel
interior shelves, magnetic door gaskets, a natural wood door handle,
adjustable leveling legs, user replaceable door panel, and a refrigerator
compartment light. “19 cu. ft.” has 12 cu.ft.
of refrigerator space and 4 cu.ft. of freezer
(calling them “19” instead of “16” seems
common in the industry, dimensions are 66"
x 35" x 28"), and it uses an average of 60
amps per day at 12V. The “10” cu.ft. is 52"

Sun Frost
The ultimate in energy efficient refrigerators... DC or AC
Three simple factors make Sun Frost the leader in energy efficient
refrigeration: 1) They’ve moved the compressor—and all the heat it
generates— out from the bottom and up onto the top of the unit. The heat
from a typical refrigerator (since the compressor is on the bottom) rises and
constantly creates an electric blanket of air around the refrigerator; 2) The
small, well designed compressors, lack of fans and the low percentage run
time all contribute to Sun Frost’s exceptionally quiet operation. No more
listening to the humming and buzzing of a typical large AC refrigerator; 3)
The polyurethane insulation is 3 inches thick in the refrigerator walls and
up to 6 inches at the freezer top to keep the heat away from your frozen
foods. Compare this with your average “energy saver” refrigerator. These
factors combine to eliminate the reasons that most average refrigerators
seem to be running all the time. Sun Frost’s higher initial cost is offset by
their incredible efficiency. This makes the idea of a solar refrigerator
practical. Conventional AC refrigerators just take too much electricity.

each day if room temperature 70 degrees, 3 hours if 80 degrees. Use a
generator (small, 2.2 kW enough), grid, wind, or solar power. Thick and
dense polyurethane insulation (80–120 mm) keeps the cold in, heat out, and
your food frozen for 24–36 before you need power again. And it gets cold
(down to -40 degrees F). Uses CFC-free ester oil R404A refrigerant and a

refrigerator only need 1–2
hours of power each day.

Mohammed Bah Abba discovered a way to use
inexpensive, locally available materials and
make simple refrigeration systems. Easy to
make, inexpensive, and requiring no
electricity, they still work incredibly well eggplants stay fresh for 27 days instead
of the normal 3, peppers and tomatoes
last 21 days or more; and African
spinach that normally spoils in just 1
day, lasts for 12. By putting a smaller clay
pot inside a larger one with wet sand in
between, he found that the natural
evaporation creates a refrigeration process
with a cost of only 30 cents! We’re
experimenting to help improve this process and
testing a solar powered fan blowing across the top of the pots as well as
using a third outside pot filled with water.

i-WLL Remote Phone Link
Satellite Telephone Systems
Instead of extending a phone line with our cordless phones or
using cellular, you can now link directly to a 6,600 lb. satellite in
geosynchronous orbit. They provides phone service for all of North
America, coastal waters, Central America and most of the
Caribbean—and the rest of the world. As easy to use as any standard
telephone, it connects you directly with the public telephone
network—just dial the number and press a send key. You receive
calls on your own 800 number.
Connect to the Internet without a phone line. This dual-line, all-digital
remote phone link delivers data, email and the Internet to your remote PC
and allows high-quality voice transmission at the same time. Using a pointto-point spread spectrum telephone system, the I-WLL never needs tuning
and assures complete privacy. And because it uses the 2.4 GHz
frequency band, there is no FCC license required. Wireless
modem rates are consistently between 9.6 and 33.6
kbps. You must have a true line-of-sight
connection (approx. 10 miles) between
sites. Lightweight portability allows
latitude in selecting an optimal
installation site.

Soltronix Headset Radio
World-Band (Shortwave) Radio
Tune in to news, entertainment, music and cultural programming from
around the world! In this era of satellite TV and the Internet,
international radio might seem quaint. In fact, radio transmissions freely
cross national boundaries, friendly and hostile alike, and cannot readily
be censored or edited. Often, views on events vary considerably from
country to country. Why not tune in to a few and draw your own
conclusions? Listening conditions vary from day to day but it’s rare to be
without something interesting to follow. In Colorado we easily receive the
BBC, Radio Canada International, Voice of Russia, Radio Deutsche Welle,
Radio Netherlands, New Zealand’s domestic service, and many others.
A light, comfortable headset radio that keeps charging as
you jog, work in the garden, watch an outdoor sporting event
or even walk around in a sunny room. The super thin
NASA spin-off solar cell powers the radio with only
30% of full sunlight and sends extra power into the
included NiMH battery. Store on a windowsill when
not in use - every hour of light gives you an extra 1-2
hours of radio time up to 18 hours when fully charged.
Excellent AM or FM sound with extended bass.
Unobtrusive internal antenna and dual headband for
comfort and stability. Excellent quality.

High Efficiency
Linear Power Supply
Many household items such as notebook
computers, answering machines and personal
stereos can be run from a battery bank, with the
proper power cord, but unfortunately few of
them are designed to operate from the 12 or 24V
commonly used. Our linear power supplies will
drop the voltage down to an appropriate level
(adjustable) and will keep it regulated to within
1%, removing potentially harmful voltage
spikes. 78% efficient, too. 2A version is a wall
plate with standard cigarette lighter socket. 8A
version is a hard-wired wall mounted box. 8A
version is great for powering 12V compact
fluorescent lamps from a 24V battery bank!
When ordering, please specify 12 or 24 volt
