Home Grown Energy

It looked about the same when we saw it yesterday. Maybe a bit more complete.

Spent the last 36 hours in Vermont visiting with my extended family.   My god-daughter is a science professor at Vermont Technical College where they are doing all sorts of interesting things in the field of Agriculture.    The most notable of which is a very large anaerobic digester they are building to produce methane from food and animal waste.   The plan, as I understand it, is to generate electricity from the methane and use that to power the campus and sell back to the grid.   This project involves students from many different disciplines plus faculty and the manager of the on site farm.   It was all very exciting.  Real home-grown energy.

And it was nice to see the family, too.
