My first post,so please be kind . I find this so exciting I just had to share with you,and its in my community so I'm partisan.

On Monday June 28th,local ( Skagit county,WA ) small renewable energy start-up 'Farm Power', broke ground on their 2nd biogas anaerobic manure digester facility in Lynden WA. This facility is could provide enough power for 500 homes as highlighted in this Puget Sound Business Journal article 'Manure-powered electricy generator planned for Lynden'.

Farm Power 's blog says their first digester in Rexville,WA is running steady. Follow them on twitter and read what other media oulets are saying about this new startup. @FarmPower

This is truly a great story of how two brothers had an idea and are making a difference in their local community and now around the great state of WA. We and our policy makers, so need to give folks like this all the help they need to expand and create small biz for the betterment of all in the community.

My hats off to Kevin and Daryl Maas and other folks like them just trying to do the best they can in and for our world.

Thanks

This is another of those "if it sounds too good to be true it probably is" ideas as was the very bad idea of turning food into ethanol. That manure needs to go back into the soil in the form of compost in order to reduce the amounts of polluting, oil consuming commercial chemical fertilizers commonly used in today's industrial farming.
