Alternative methods of energy will be the topic at a workshop open to everyone on Tuesday, February 15th. Sponsored by the University of Wyoming Extension Office in Sheridan, organizer Scott Hininger tells us.

The specialist is Milt Geiger of the University of Wyoming. A report from the UW Extension Office website titled “Introduction to Farm Energy” indicates that “renewable energy is energy that is generated from natural resources, including sunlight, wind, rain, geothermal and biomass...[these] can be replenished at the same rate as [they are] used."

For the February 15th workshop, Geiger will address developing renewable energy for one's own use by perhaps installing small-scale solar or wind systems, or growing and converting biofuel crops for one's own farming or ranching operations. Hininger explains how he decided to bring Geiger to Sheridan for this Alternate Energy Workshop February 15th workshop.

The workshop is free and open to anyone. It will be held at 6 pm in the Watt Agriculture Center at Sheridan College.
