A recent U.S. Department of Agriculture On-Farm Renewable Energy Production Survey found that 202 farms in New York were producing renewable energy. Of the 202 farms, 156 had photovoltaic panels and 58 had wind turbines. In addition, 18 farms have methane digesters to create bio-gas, the second most in the country behind Wisconsin!
Through the employment of renewable energies the farms saved an average of $5,067 on their utility bills.
