Given the need for an interim baseload or on call renewable energy generation, we believe that biodiesel can be used to provide a clean energy source especially if partnered with solar or wind.
The original diesel engine was designed to run on peanut oil. Most modern diesel engines and generators can still run on vegetable oils.
We have years of practical experience making and using biodiesel starting in the 1990s. Although we used it for running our cars and commercial vehicles, using it to provide electricity is an obvious solution for night time, peaking, or emergency renewable energy generation.

Co-located with solar, along with a local supply of seed oils, biodiesel offers a great opportunity for regional communities to become more self sufficient, lower energy costs, be more competitive while creating more local jobs.
