We recently signed up for green electric energy through our carrier. Here’s how it works:
Most people know that am I am a milk lover. Granddaughter Joy is a cow girl, who after earning a degree in agriculture, works on a dairy farm in Connecticut.
Thus I was delighted to learn that cow as well as other animal offal can be used efficiently. Farmers can go green and make money.
We have many cows on the East Coast and Dominion which serves the mid-Atlantic and sells energy to NYC has worked out arrangements with farmers in Pennsylvania to supply electricity generated from cow manure. An an environmentally responsible company, Dominion has been shifting away from coal for some time. I don’t think changes in Washington will have much effect on this green activity. Coal is so over in most of the US. This gives me hope for our air and water.
