PR Newswire reports that Bread Alone has unveiled a $4 million clean energy facility.
- Bread Alone, a local bakery chain in New York state, has unveiled a new 8,000 sq. ft. net-zero facility.

- Private sector leadership is key to a clean future.
“A 366kW on-site solar array will allow the bakery to renewably produce (net) all energy on-site that they consume. This renewable energy will be used to power the fully electrified building: Heuft electric ovens, induction stovetops, air source heat pumps, and engineered air flow. In addition to the Heuft ovens, the Boiceville bakery will bake breads in the original Andre Lefort wood-fired brick ovens, fueled by renewable scrap wood.”
