Maine farm turns waste and manure into heat and electricity
EXETER - To some, farming may be considered a traditional or old-fashioned way of making a living in Maine, but one farm in Exeter is proving just how modern farming has become. Stonyvale farm, which is less than a 45 minute drive from Bangor, is the first of its kind in the state to come up with a way to turn waste and manure into heat and electricity.
"There are approximately 140 digesters in the U.S. This is the first one in Maine," said John Wintle, operations manager at Exeter agri-energy, which owns and operates the anaerobic digestion system at Stonyvale.
The farm held a press conference last week to announce this new innovation that is not only helping the environment but also allowing Stonyvale to keep its costs down.
