Bausch + Lomb Installing Solar Panels

Bausch + Lomb Inc. is planning to install 3,667 solar panels at the 1400 N. Goodman St. facility where a new line of contact lenses will be produced.

B+L has contracted with Advanced Solar Products, a Flemington, N.J., company, to do the work. The panels will reduce the company's carbon footprint by about 800 tons of emissions annually, the equivalent of taking about 100 gasoline-powered cars off the road, according to a news release from Advanced Solar.

B+L is expanding the plant to produce its new ULTRA silicone hydrogel contact lens.

The 56-acre site includes a manufacturing facility, office space and parking. The ground-mounted solar power system, located on 3.6-acres portion at the northeast corner of the property, will make enough electricity to power about 175 homes.
