Maryland To Buy Chicken-Litter Power

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Chicken waste will one day power state offices and university buildings in Maryland.

Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Friday that the state and the University of Maryland have agreed to buy up to 10 megawatts of electricity from a proposed Federalsburg power plant. The deal is expected to save the state up to $80 million over the life of the 15-year agreement.

So now what are the crop farmers going to use for fertilizer? Afterall we keep on hearing how chicken litter is a hot commodity and in such high demand as fertilizer.
All sarcasm aside now. I know there is an overabundance of this stuff no matter what anyone says and no where to put it. I think this is a great idea and have no problem using tax dollars for this.
