Marketplace

Renee Rippchen works for BioEnergy Solutions. Her company is selling what they casually refer to as "poo power." And they make that power by capturing the methane gas from cow manure, cleaning it up, and feeding it directly into PG&E's natural-gas pipelines.

Rippchen says, "So one average Holstein will produce around 120 pounds of manure every day. And so we can capture the gas from those cows, and it takes basically two cows to power one average California home."

Renewable every day!
