  • Four graduates of Tufts University’s School of Engineering are looking for start-up capital to begin producing their award-winning innovative showerheads that already have advanced orders from universities and hotel chains.

  • And the New England Appliance and Electronics Group in Franklin unveiled its new rooftop solar farm on its Grove Street warehouse. This installation is now the third largest solar farm in Massachusetts, and is expected to cut the company’s electrical costs by 20 percent.
