Springboard Workshop - March 2010

Had a great time at the workshop, which had attendees from all over the US and even one fellow from Argentina! It was good to meet all the people at Springboard and hear about their new ideas to make small-scale biodiesel production a reality for businesses, municipalities, colleges, farmers, and just folks who want to enjoy fuel independence.
I still really like the model of decentralized fuel production, where people or organizations produce more of their own energy. Speaking of energy, we also got to visit the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, where we saw their BioPro and their gigantic solar array (1.9 MegaWatt!) which supplies most of their power needs, and electric vehicle charging stations.
And of course sampled some of their great beer. They are truly a leader in sustainable and green energy.

The quest for alternative energy and biofuels continues to strengthen as the U.S. Federal government continues to invest money into research.

I'd like to take a moment to discuss this with you and the readers of Please take a moment to consider this as it would be a privilege to submit a guest post!

Great Blog! I have bookmarked you!

Please take a look at my video's I use a slightly different method to the one you use (you are way more scientific!)

I have really been inspired to do more by your site!
