Gov. Martin O'Malley recently announced Maryland’s "Clean Bay Power Project" -- a new plan to buy power generated from animal manure, according to a local news report.
Poultry litter from Eastern Shore chicken farms now has the opportunity to supply the state with environmentally friendly electricity from litter.
Those seeking to provide the manure-generated power must be:
- able to generate up to 10 megawatts,
- connected to the regional electricity grid,
- able to generate electricity by December 31, 2015 and
- able to submit bids by November 30.
