Caption: A farmer tills the soil before planting 2 acres of switchgrass, a biomass fuel that will be cut and baled like regular hay, then processed in a pellet mill to eventually be burned in a pellet stove for heat. A home with photo voltaic cells on its roof (generating electricity from the sun) and solar thermal collectors (generating hot water, also from the sun) is in the background. Photographed in New Hampshire.
