Cow Manure for Clean Energy? – Highlight on Pacific Gas & Electric

The search for clean energy is urgent, expensive and sure to cause a heated debate if you bring it up at a cocktail party.  Cow manure is smelly, abundant and sure to make people shake their heads if you bring it up at a cocktail party.

One company that has developed a creative way to deal with both of these is Pacific Gas & Electric.  PG & E’s ClimateSmart program uses methane captured from the waste of dairy cows.  Methane is a greenhouse gas worse than carbon dioxide and cows produce a lot of it.  PG & E believes their progam will result in a 75,000 metric tons reduction in verifiable greenhouse gas emissions.  Click here to learn more about this project and to see what 75,000 metric tons of GHG emissions is equivalent to.
