And the cow goes poo...

The Vintage Dairy Biogas Project is a progressive energy outlet, based on the methane gas provided from the dung of our mother cow, that has recently sprung up in Riverdale, California, providing clean, renewable energy to over 1200 homes a day.

The Govardhan Farm just south of Mumbai, India. run by the devotees of the ISKCON Radha-Gopinath Mandir in Chowpatty, also runs a similar biogas project on a smaller scale, providing for their cooking and electricity needs for a farm community with around 30 residents.
Here are some pics of the Govardhan Farm biogas project.

This is a great option for our ISKCON farm communities to look into, as a free renewable energy source and also as a tool for outreach to our environmentally open minded friends. Check out this Beginner's Guide to Biogas for more details.
