CVPS Cow Power will be a topic of discussion on a new PBS series, “America Revealed.” The Blue Spruce Farm, the first CVPS Cow Power farm producer, will be featured during the series’ third episode, which is scheduled to air on PBS and Vermont Public Television on April 25 at 10 pm.
The show, titled ‘Electric Nation,’ will explore “the intricacies, vulnerabilities and remarkable ingenuity required to keep American’s modern electric power grid up and running.”
PBS host Yul Kwon visited the Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport, where co-owner Marie Audet showed him how Cow Power supplements energy on their farm and at local residences.
The ‘American Revealed’ series aims to help “viewers discover and appreciate the vast infrastructure that makes our modern lives possible.”
Other shows within the series focus on food and transportation systems.
