Ski Resort to Power Gondola with Cow Manure

October 2012 - Killington Resort, a ski area in central Vermont, has announced that it will power one of its gondola lifts for the 2012-13 ski season using electricity generated from Vermont dairy cows. Through a program offered by Green Mountain Power called Cow Power, the resort is able to purchase part of its electricity at a premium over retail electricity rates to support Vermont's dairy farms. The participating farms create electricity through collecting cow manure, feeding it into an anaerobic digester to produce methane, and burning that methane to power a generator.
