California (TGW) – Utility company PG&E Corp began producing natural gas from manure, which will be used to create electricity.
The vat holding the manure covers 5 football fields and is 33 feet deep.
The Vintage Dairy Biogas Project, the brainchild of life long dairyman David Albers, aims to provide the natural gas needed to power 1,200 homes a day, Albers said at the facility's inauguration ceremony on Tuesday.
Most of the manure comes from cows.
