Milking the Sun: Dairy Takes on Solar Cogeneration from kristine a. wong on Vimeo.

On June 20, 2012, Clover Stornetta Farms in Petaluma, Calif. became the first dairy in the U.S. to generate solar hot water and electricity using a cogeneration system. The system was manufactured by Silicon Valley startup Cogenra Solar based in Mountain View, Calif.

I produced, shot, and edited this video and wrote an accompanying story.
