Representative Anne Gobi
This report, prepared for Representative Anne Gobi, investigates methods to improve energy efficiency on Massachusetts dairy farms. We included a discussion on available technologies that, if implemented, would reduce the amount of electricity used by dairy farmers. Also, this report investigates the feasibility of implementing renewable energy sources, such as wind turbines, solar panels, and solar hot water heaters. For our sample of five farms, we recommended the technologies that would be best suited for their individual farms. Also, included is a method for other dairy farmers to calculate their potential energy savings.
