ETHANOL IS UNIQUE AMONG ALL ENERGY PLATFORMS: IT WAS BUILT BY PEOPLE LIKE YOU. HERE ARE A FEW OF THEIR STORIES.
For many, the story of ethanol is an argument in favor of renewable domestic energy. For others, it’s about a clean alternative to petroleum and a tool to fight climate change.
For ACE, the story of ethanol is a profile in courage.
That’s because this industry was developed and built by ordinary people from small communities. They were fighting to create a path out of the crushing economic conditions that besieged rural America at the dawn of the 21st century. Without any template or precedent with which to guide them — and long before the explosion in clean technology or mainstream enthusiasm for sustainability — a lot of brave folks came together and committed their own money and time to rescue their families, their neighbors and their communities by building ethanol plants.
In this way, the ethanol industry is truly community-based energy.
The people of ethanol are the people of ACE. As a member-driven organization of ordinary people who have accomplished extraordinary things, ACE brings together the hearts and minds of these diverse individuals.
We think you might enjoy getting to know them.
