Biogas Projects

Farm Power Misty Meadow

In 2012 The Climate Trust contracted with Farm Power for Smart Energy’s sixth project, Misty Meadow in Tillamook, Oregon.

This project reached full operation in January 2013. The digester replaced a 16-million-gallon open tank at the family-owned farm. Its operation prevents more than 7,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere each year. Pacific Power buys the power generated by biogas at Misty Meadows.

About Farm Power

Farm Power’s mission is to keep the food supply near where people live. To do so, the company builds and operates digesters in partnerships with farmers who provide the manure. Brothers Kevin and Daryl Maas, who own Farm Power, do the project legwork, including designing the digesters and raising funds. So far, Smart Energy has participated in three projects with Farm Power. "We want to make community digesters work for farms that are too small to do it themselves," said Daryl Maas, Farm Power co-founder.

Like Smart Energy, Farm Power celebrated its five-year anniversary in 2012.
