New York announces funding incentives to dairy farmers to produce renewable power from waste

December 26th was a great day for New York dairy farmers or food processing plants as NYSERDA, an agency announced their program opportunity notice PON 2684. approx 29 million dollars are available on "First come first served" basis to applicants with max grant of 2 million dollars each.
Many smart farmers will take action fast to solve their waste disposal and energy problem by building anaerobic digesters and cogen system fired by biogas. Energy produced from their waste can now power the dairy farm and make them energy independent. The grant incentive will enable these farmers to require lower capital and improve the economic feasibility of the project.
Early bird catches the worm. Do not wait too long. Apply now because by February the money will be gone.

Solar power is the key to energy independence

Sustainability of our planet depends on Clean power sources. We are lucky in USA to be given reserves of oil and natural gas so within 10 years we are reported to stop importing oil and exporting natural gas.
So what does it means? Stop the development of renewable energy? Knowing that our climate is changing due to greenhouse gases emitted to the atmosphere, this will be a stupid conclusion. Gas prices are now coming down again and it is time we invest in renewable energy sources to protect our world and slow down the negative consequences of petroleum based energy. The big oil companies and Federal policy leaders would benefit from producing more oil and gas with more revenues.Invest in solar and Wind and help America become independent of dirty energy sources. True independence comes with using renewable energy and enjoying the quality of life by controlling global warming.
