CVPS Supports Four New Farm Methane Systems

Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) announced that it will provide grants to four farms to defray the cost of building new farm-based electric generating systems. When in place, the four projects will provide a total of 8.4 million kWh of annual electricity supply for the utility's CVPS Cow Power green pricing program. Under the program, CVPS customers can choose to receive 25%, 50% or 100% of their electricity as green power at an extra cost of 4¢/kWh. Program revenues are used to support dairy farmers who want to process their cow manure and other farm waste to generate electricity. Currently, more than 2,500 CVPS customers are enrolled in the program.
