Build power generators near large dairy farms in the Central Valley. Use the manure from the dairy to produce methane fuel. The dried manure could also be burned, leaving no toxic residue. Sewage treatment plants have been using methane from the treatment process as fuel for years.

       Surley if you kept them locked in a sealed shed the shed would fill up with meathane from the cows and you could pump it out.
