Renewable Energy

Wind TurbinesThe Renewable Energy Program builds capacity for the successful adoption of renewable energy technologies, and develops practices for improving energy efficiency of existing systems on farm. Efforts focus on commercial production of biofuels, wind power generation among rural communities, and on-farm energy and fertilizer production by anaerobic digestion systems. Information on solar energy, on-farm energy efficiency, and the utilization of co-products from corn ethanol production is also available.
