Kentucky investing $200,000 for green energy research

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The state is investing $200,000 for
research toward using switchgrass as an energy source.
Gov. Steve Beshear says in a news release that half of the money
is from federal stimulus funds and half from tobacco settlement
funds.
The money will go to the Kentucky Agricultural Development
Board.
Funds will be used to show Kentucky farmers can produce biomass
crops on a large scale and show the benefits of sustainable energy
production.
