​Kennedy Leads Legislative Approval of 'Cow Power' Bill

By  Mona Kazour, Bradford Patch. 

From the Senator: Connecticut farmers will now have the opportunity to join the green energy revolution, thanks to legislation championed by Senator Ted Kennedy, Jr. (D-Branford). Senate Bill 943 promotes the use of cow manure and food waste as a renewable energy source through the process of anaerobic digestion. The bill also creates an easier, cheaper and faster regulatory permitting process for farmers who are interested in adopting this technology.
