Plastic tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries has
received a $1 million solar energy grant from Pennsylvania's Dept. of Community
and Economic Development to fund the installation of a 1 MW rooftop solar panel
system. The array will contribute more than 50 percent of the company's energy
needs. NewAge is working with California-based Borrego Solar Systems Inc. to
install more than 4,000 solar panels. The panels will cover three quarters of
the rooftop on the 244,000-sq-ft building.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
