    Does the biogas in the turbine generator have a lot of sulfur in it? Because that's the problem with reclaiming biogas from wastewater treatment plants and landfills.?

    The only thing that bothers me with their program is the "Kombucha brewery."

    Products that purport to be amazing health substances but which really are complete bunk…. just puts a bad taste in my mouth over the entire operation.?

    I like the idea a lot, but the fish really don't have a good life, do they??

    This is a very intelligent operation. If the regulatory authorities over it are anything like the control heirarchy over federal informants, then in my experience the information sent up to prove virtue to the regulatory authorities will simply be stolen and credited to someone else in the upper class and you will be without your activity eventually.

    "The Plant will produce all of its own electricity and heat on site and using proven technologies. Our anaerobic digester will take in food waste (everything from spent distillers grains to vegetable produce waste to beef-fat sludge), digest it, and release methane into a combined heat and power (CHP) system. This system will supply the building with heat and electricity. The Plant will remain connected to the public electrical grid and natural gas pipeline, providing us not only with a backup power source but also the possibility of feeding our surplus electricity back to the public grid.

    So while we may occasionally take power from the grid, we will also be giving it back, leaving us with a net-zero usage level."

    From their website. To all those wondering about their electricity usage.
