A major goal of this small community is to use homegrown local power sources to become independent from foreign oil by implementing conversion technologies.

REYNOLDS, INDIANA in White County is starting a one-town rebellion to launch homegrown local energy production to become independent from foreign oil, while gaining solutions to waste management issues and revitalized economic development. Its biorenewable power resources will convert animal and human waste to biogas and electrical energy. “We do have a vision to create the first biorenewable community in the United States,” declares this town of 533.
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels took a bold approach in naming Reynolds the future BioTown USA. With the implementation of the plan to convert Reynolds from a reliance on fossil fuels, a template will be set that simultaneously promotes energy security, rural development, profitable agriculture and a green thriving environment.
