(KING) Snohomish County Public Utility Managers in Washington State topped Puget Sound Energy in a bid to buy manure-generated power from digester operator near Monroe. 

Methane is captured from the waste to power a generator that converts it to electricity.
The Qualco Energy digester turns manure from a nearby dairy farm into enough energy to power 300 homes.
