We're happy to announce that as of August 1st, 2010, Whitmore Farm will be receiving all of our electricity from a renewable wind energy source off of the Chesapeake from clean currents http://www.cleancurrents.com/ green energy solutions.
Surprisingly, our rate will be equal to or lower than our current rate from Allegheny Power!
Next year we hope to add solar panels to our farm op and try and be a zero energy input operation. Despite the tax credits and such available from the government, installing a solar system is still a ten year investment in return on your money.
We are excited to be no longer depending on non-renewable resources like coal energy, especially in light of highly destructive practices like 'mountain-top removal' in our own back yard, West Virginia.
