Propagating Patsy’s poo power potential

cowYes, she’s back. After powering a new plant in Israel, Patsy’s now kicking up a storm in the US. A bunch of new plants are being set up to capture the methane within the millions of cow pats offloaded every day, which can be converted into electricity. Read all about it here:

“Pacific Gas and Electric is teaming with dairy farms throughout California to use their animal waste to create electricity. The San Francisco-based utility has already demonstrated a 60-kilowatt generator that uses cow manure as a fuel source. At least a couple dozen dairies in the state have received $6 million in federal and state grants to go forth with these kinds of projects. Similarly, Portland General Electric is partnering with dairy farms in Oregon to do the same.”
