Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Life sciences instrumentation developer BioTek Instruments Inc. has opened its second solar facility.

In addition to the company’s existing 500-kW solar farm in Whiting, Vermont, a new, 88-kW photovoltaic solar energy farm is now online in Milton, Vt. The facility was developed in agreement with ABJ Property Management LLC and installed by Norris Brothers Solar Development LLC.

The additional renewable energy will provide power to BioTek’s new 22,000-sq-ft facility expansion and is expected to offset 100 percent of the company’s annual electricity costs well into the future.

“The new solar farm is a continuation of our existing companywide programs promoting energy conservation, recycling and environmental protection,” said Adam Alpert, vice president of BioTek. “This new initiative is a testament to our passion and commitment toward clean energy and a greener tomorrow. By acting locally, I’m proud to know that we are contributing toward the bigger goal: a cleaner environment around the world.”

BioTek develops cell imaging systems, microplate readers, washers, dispensers, automated incubators, stackers and pipetting systems for the life sciences industry.
