Over the Moon for Cow Power

And yet another interesting story on the Daily Grist, this time concerning cow power. As the story states, this form of renewable energy has been wildly successful in Vermont. There are similar efforts to get a similar program underway here in Maine, but unlike Vermont, Maine does not have very many farms with ample enough cattle under one roof to make this type of project economically feasible. For this reason, there is talk of introducing food waste into the equation, which would allow smaller farms to participate.

Interesting concept.
