the power of poo!

This is the level of possibility that’s going to be required to not power, but under-consume, our way out of the coming power crisis.

Under the Executive’s proposal sent today to the Metropolitan King County Council, the County’s Wastewater Treatment Division would partner with a private Seattle-based company, FreeHold Group LLC., to build a district energy system that would extract heat energy generated inside the Elliott Bay interceptor and use it for heating and cooling in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood. The interceptor is a major pipeline that carries wastewater from downtown Seattle to the West Point Treatment Plant.

I love living in a place where this is possible.
