Comments Off on ‘Cow Power’ Explores How Vermont Is Turning Turds Into a Treasured Energy Resource

Dairy farms are going out of business all across the United States, but in Vermont, citizens have banded together to support family farms by turning cow manure into a form of renewable energy . Cow Power is a new documentary by Allison Gillette that explores how the state of Vermont is turning waste into treasure by collecting manure and then biodigesting it to generate electricity. So far, the project can generate enough energy to power 400 homes while reducing methane emissions from livestock—and the founders believe the initiative could eventually generate upwards of 10% of the nation’s energy needs. If you’d like to check out this inspiring documentary, you can watch it today on iTunes or Google Play , and it will be coming to Netflix in the next few months. + Cow Power Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Allison Gillette , bio-energy , biodigester , cow power , cow power film , green energy , Poo Power! , renewable energy
