MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Customers of Vermont's largest electric utility can now take advantage of the "Cow Power" program that generates power by using methane produced from cow manure to run generators.

GMP says the Vermont Public Service Board recently approved expanding the GMP Cow Power Program to the utility's entire service territory.

Cow Power was first offered to customers in 2004.

The GMP Cow Power program currently includes 12 farms, and generates 16 million kilowatt-hours of power a year — enough to completely power 2,200 average Vermont homes.

Customers who choose to be a part of the Cow Power program pay an extra 4 cents per kilowatt hour.
