Battery manufacturer Boston-Power Inc. was ready to accept a huge chunk of change from Washington to pay for a new factory in Auburn, MA. Then, on Aug. 5, the word came down. The company would not get the $100 million in federal stimulus money it hoped for. Now, the company says it will build the plant elsewhere-perhaps in Europe or Asia. MORE
