Additional Info

The Athlone farm southeast of Stratford is converting methane from cow manure and bio-waste to electrical and thermal energy. Athlone Farms Inc., the 600-acre dairy and crop farm retained PlanET Biogas Solutions Inc., to construct a biogas system that will provide enough electricity to power at least 500 homes. By utilizing methane produced from their farm manure and imported organic waste, the system reduces atmospheric methane, provide a better quality of crop nutrient and even supply clean bedding for the farm's dairy animals. The owner applied to the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) in 2010 and received approval to proceed in 2011 and to produce power for Ontario's electricity grid
