Poop Power

Ha! When I first posed the idea of generating electricity with my septic tank, everyone thought I was crazy.

Waste treatment plants, like this one in Arizona, are extracting the methane gas from their muncipal sewage and using it to, not only power the plant, but also to provide electricity for area homes. They estimate a $90,000 savings.

And, as the reporter quips, "It's a very green source of energy."

  1. That's great. More cities should adopt these practices.
