A business executive with more than 20 years of experience, Darin Pastor operates as the CEO of Capstone Affluent Strategies in East Amherst, New York. With an eye on long-term economic growth and stability, Darin Pastor supports transitioning to emissions-free agricultural manufacturing plants fueled with renewable energy.
As the second largest driver of carbon dioxide emissions due mostly to beef and dairy production, the agricultural industry is overdue for a change if we are serious about keeping the planet livable and protecting biodiversity as well as property.
The major sources of renewable, clean energy are solar, wind, and biomass fuel (fuel which is made from crops like corn). For farmers and other agricultural workers who are interested in increasing their use of renewable energy, the federal government has set aside millions of dollars in incentives for you to invest in renewable systems with the passage of the 2002 Farm Bill.
