Grass Pellets HVGE


Our Hudson Valley Grass Energy (HVGE) project is making great strides. Farmers with surplus hay or fallow fields and an interest in additional income for their farm, energy independence, and the ability to recycle by-products invite LHLIRCD's mobile pelletizer and its operator to their property to have their grasses densified into grass pellets. The pellets may be used to generate heat in the farmer's house or may be sold to interested customers--both residential and commercial.

For more information, please see the Hudson Valley Grass Energy blog. To contact HVGE directly, call Bob at 845.800.0996. For more great photos, click here.
