The Energy Alliance Group of Michigan (EAG) was recently a sponsor of the Parjana Green Earth Day Celebration that took place at Parjana’s Detroit Distribution Office.
Parjana® & Parjana® Distribution provides innovative solutions for managing the world’s most critical resource, water. These solutions include the use of the EGRP® (Energy-Passive Groundwater Recharge Product) system, which is a solution to storm water management, by recharging the groundwater through increased infiltration into the soil.
The most common use of this product is removing standing water from persistently saturated areas, EGRP®’s applications includes: sports fields, parks, retention ponds, residential, agricultural, airports and parking lots just to name a few.
Parjana® Green is a separate entity established to interface with companies, non-profit institutions, government and non-government organizations. Its focus is to make others aware of the EGRP® system and how it can make the world healthier, safer and more sustainable.
West Bloomfield High School Wind Generator
Just in time for Earth Day, the EARTH club of West Bloomfield High School installed an experimental wind generator on the roof of the concession building right by the football field at the high school. WBHS student Brendan Gimby will be designing all the monitoring hardware and software so we can keep track of how much energy is generated by the system.
The school thanks David Koyle, Franklin Wind Energy Group, for the donation of the wind generator, and Scott Ringlein, CEO of The Energy Alliance Group of Michigan, and Tiny Runge of Dynalectric Michigan for helping with the installation.
The EARTH Club at West Bloomfield High School is one of the largest and most active clubs at the school and is involved in recycling, sustainability issues, and now renewable energy.
Traverse City West Middle School Energy Fair
The Energy Alliance Group of Michigan helped critique and select the best entry in the 8th grade AP Science Energy Fair. Students put together ideas on how the school could actually save energy, with hopes that the school might be able to implement some of the ideas in the future. Scott Ringlein, CEO of EAG of Michigan, worked with two other business people to evaluate the top two ideas. Students were judged on creativity and general hypothesis of how their ideas would work.
“The students that we worked with are Grand Valley State University students. This class was broken up into teams and they had to develop an energy efficiency project. The team that asked us to participate and review the projects actually used students from a local Traverse City public school for their project,” Ringlein said.
The event was held at Grand Valley State University in April.
“I always enjoy working with and learning from students of all ages. I’m impressed with the ideas they come up and glad that young people are now looking at ways to conserve energy,” Ringlein said.
