Mission Statement
helping farmers increase energy self-reliance and profitability

Gas Pump

This website is designed to help farmers save money and reduce environmental externalities from their farms.  The authors of this website are focused on helping family farms and what we call “independent farms,” or small to medium sized farms that are not vertically integrated into a corporate structure.

Our main goal at AgEnergySolutions is to promote the long term sustainability and longevity of a family based rural community and agricultural market throughout the United States.  AgEnergySolutions is an effort of Vermont Law School’s Institute for Energy and the Environment.

The Institute for Energy and the Environment serves as a resource on energy law and policy. The Institute distributes scholarly, technical and practical publications; provides forums and conferences for professional education and issue development; and serves as a center for graduate research on energy issues, with an environmental awareness.
