Blue Spruce Farm NPS 100

The first farm in Vermont to put Cow Power on the electric grid is now capturing wind energy with the NPS100 from Northern Power Systems. Blue Spruce Farm produces over 4 million gallons of top quality milk each year, which is used to make locally produced Cabot Cheese. The family crops 3,000 acres to feed their dairy cows. In 2006 they became the first farm in Vermont to turn cow manure into electricity with a methane digester, and they generate 2.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually for their community.
