Producing Green Energy in Partnership with Farmers
Ag-Grid Energy partners with dairy farmers to produce electricity and renewable natural gas generated in anaerobic digesters from cow manure and various types of food waste. Our proven processes are sustainable and carbon negative. Our dual purpose is to create energy with positive environmental impacts and to support family-owned farms by reducing their costs and sharing profits.
Carbon Negative Is a Positive
A carbon neutral entity generates no additional greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. However, a carbon negative entity is more impactful because it sequesters greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
More Positive Impacts from Ag-Grid
In addition to generating green energy, Ag-Grid’s process diverts food waste from landfills and incinerators to create nutrient-rich byproducts used as organic crop fertilizer or compost.
Meadowbrook Dairy will be Ag-Grid Energy’s first renewable natural gas (RNG) project and first project in Michigan.
