About Cow Power
Cows may be powering your home.
From cow poop to cow power - we have a new way to power Vermont. One cow produces over 30 gallons of manure a day. Now, multiply that by 1,000, the number of cows on a typical Cow Power farm. That’s a lot of cow poop. Which, interestingly enough, means that’s also a lot of methane. And methane can be used to create electricity. And thus, we present to you, GMP Cow Power.
Green Mountain Power customers who want to support renewable energy AND Vermont dairy farms can do both through GMP Cow Power. By opting into the program, you help Vermont dairy farmers purchase generators that run on methane from cow manure, increase renewable energy generated in the region, and provide incentives for farmers to get into the business of producing Cow Power.
