Vt. Farm Plays Host To Cow Power Open House

A Vermont dairy farm that turns cow manure into electricity is opening its doors for an open house Friday.

 

Chaput Family Farms, which began generating power that way Aug. 3, is expected to make about 1.6 million kilowatt hours’ worth a year, or enough to power nearly 250 homes.

 

On Friday, the family will join with officials of Vermont Electric Cooperative and Central Vermont Public Service to host an open house at the North Troy farm from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

Farm tours, a free picnic lunch and information on renewable energy will be given.
