LIGHTING AT JEWEL HEART

   Jewel Heart of Ann Arbor has selected The Energy Alliance Group of Michigan (EAG) to provide interior and exterior lighting improvements, which will help Jewel Heart be brighter, safer and more energy-efficient.
  EAG will be installing 7 new exterior induction lights, 120 interior LED lights and 12 LED exit signs.
  With these new lights, it is anticipated that Jewel Heart will reduce its energy consumption (for lighting) by more than 43 percent and save more than $1,200 a year. Jewel Heart also will receive a rebate from DTE Energy for installing these energy efficient lights.
  During the initial facility audit, EAG also discovered that Jewel Heart was paying monthly service fees for multiple gas and electric meters (a total of nine meters) as the facility originally housed multiple tenants.

  EAG recommended that Jewel Heart contact their utility providers and reduce the number of meters to just two. By doing so, Jewel Heart will save more than $1,500 a year in monthly service fees.
  Jewel Heart is dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism and to bringing the practice of this tradition within the context of contemporary life to people.

EAG introduces TotalGrow lights to Pacific Ag summit

   As a result of the Energy Alliance Group's (EAG) participation in

EAG was pleased to present the TotalGrow lighting systems during the September Pacific Agriculture Innovation Summit and Conference in Honolulu.
the Pacific Agriculture Innovation Summit and Conference in Honolulu, HI this past September, EAG has two new opportunities for use of its TotalGrow lighting system.

 The TotalGrow lighting, combining extreme energy efficiency with advanced plant-enhancing light wavelengths, will be utilized by the University of Hawaii's Cooperative Extension Service in a research project, and by Mari's Gardens who will use it for developing a specialized aquaponics growing system. 

   Aquaponics is a process that integrates fresh-water fish farming through aquaculture while growing plants via hydroponics, using the same water.

   EAG's Founder Scott Ringlein attended and presented at the two-day conference, aimed at prospecting and promoting innovative agriculture and energy solutions for worldwide populations. 

   "There was quite a bit of interest in our TotalGrow lights and we were happy to introduce this technology at the summit. And it was really interesting for us to learn what's going on in the areas of agriculture and energy efficiencies at the global level," he said. Read more here.

Mari's Gardens in Hawaii is working with a Japanese company to produce aquaponics plant and fish growing systems in a standard shipping container.
Learn if you can save your company money on natural gas
