Ethanol production in 15, 30, and 80 million gallon per year production plants are analyzed at various subsidy levels. The results indicate that removing per plant subsidy limits allows reduced total state subsidy expenditures. This action takes advantage of the economies of scale inherent in larger ethanol plants.
