Turkeys provide a new source of power

MINNESOTA - Minnesota will soon be home to a new kind of alternative energy plant. A British company called Fibrowatt plans to build a power plant near the central Minnesota town of Benson. The facility would burn a mix of turkey manure and wood chips to make electricity. The project would provide Exel Energy with a third of the renewable energy it's required to buy every year. But some opposed to the project say there are better uses for turkey manure.
