Disposables maker goes solar, targeting energy costs

A NewAge factory in Pennsylvania that carries a $300,000 annual energy bill is about to change that expense line item. The maker of single-use bioprocessing components, including tubing and bags, has put the plant roof to work by carrying a 4,000-panel, 1-megawatt solar-energy system. The cost: $4.2 million, about half of which is being financed with state and federal subsidies. Story
