Why Here? Why Now? Why Not?

There’s never been a more opportune time to develop an alternative energy company from the ground up to meet the needs of a dramatically changing world.

Or, one could easily understand, it might well be the worst time to start an alternative energy company, especially considering today’s horrible economy. Good thing we’re not looking for a loan yet. Nobody’s lending money, especially to punk startups like Bioroot Energy. Yet, here we are being “contrary” to conventional wisdom: Launching our startup in the midst of a severe downturn, and in the great state of Montana, with under 1 million residents no less.

The entire industrialized world needs sustainable green energy, all it can make, and from wherever and whatever sources it can be made from. As long as those energy sources are truly sustainable and environmentally responsible.

We think there’s no better place to prove ourselves and deliver the right technology to convert our trash and non-crop biomass into clean, green, sustainable and renewable biofuel.  If you’re a Bitterroot valley resident, think about what this choice of locations means for a moment. If we can prove our business model here, we can prove our methods, technology and know how anywhere on the planet that it makes good financial and environmental sense.

Towns. Cities. Coal fired power plants. Methane Fields. Landfills. That’s a whole lot of places!

What are we celebrating? This year’…

What are we celebrating?

This year’s July 4th festivities were a bit muted. There really isn’t much to celebrate, other than being free Americans. And we are still free even if we are impoverished. We’re free to make bold moves to improve our quality of life. And we’re free to do nothing if that’s what we want. But our children will pay the price of our dereliction to do what is right for our country, our natural environment, and good for American business.

With freedom comes responsibility and sacrifice. If you’re serious about making a difference in this bioenergy arena, be prepared to work hard and do a lot of evangelizing.
