This is pretty cool. A New Hampshire utility is test driving cocoa bean shells as an supplementary energy source to the polluting coal it currently employs to power its boilers. If all goes according to plan, the utility will partner with a local Lindt chocolate factory (mmm, truffles) to relieve it of its (free) shells when it begins processing beans there early next year.
