WGL : Washington Gas Energy Services and Sterling Planet Present More Than $11,000 to Pennsylvania Environmental Council at Abington Friends School Tree Planting

Oct 18, 2014

(You can enter multiple email addresses separated by commas) Message : *Required fields Partnership Reduces Carbon Emissions and Air and Water Pollution in Pennsylvania Washington Gas Energy Services, Inc. (WGES), Sterling Planet and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) will celebrate their partnership at the first Pennsylvania tree planting event held today at the Abington Friends School . Students, community members and WGES employees will plant more than 300 native trees and shrubs on the banks of Jenkintown Creek, and a contribution to the PA Carbon Reduction Fund will be presented, with $9,125 donated by WGES and $2,500 by Sterling Planet. The volunteer effort will contribute to improving the air and water quality in the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford watershed region. The native trees and shrubs will restore 25,000 square feet of stream buffer along 500 feet of Jenkintown Creek, preventing pollution and runoff into the water. The trees will also absorb carbon dioxide from the air. “The WGES PA Carbon Offsets product improves the local environment while offering residential and commercial customers the option to reduce their carbon footprints,” said Laura Pagliarulo, Manager, Green Products, Washington Gas Energy Services. “Washington Gas Energy Services is committed to continuing to offer unique market-driven solutions that allow our customers the chance to improve our local environment today and into the future.” WGES PA Carbon Offsets match customers’ natural gas usage with local carbon offsets while also funding future clean air and water projects in Pennsylvania. A notable feature of the WGES PA Carbon Offsets product is that it results in contributions into the PA Carbon Reduction Fund, managed by PEC, established to fund additional clean air and water projects, such as tree plantings, throughout the state. This distinctive approach creates both current and future benefits for the local environment. “Community service is central to the educational experience at Abington Friends School, said Rich Nourie, head of school, Abington Friends School. “Our students value the opportunity to make a difference in the local environment right here on our campus.” WGES PA Carbon Offsets are matched to 5 percent of all residential customers’ natural gas usage and 3.5 percent of all small commercial customers’ natural gas usage in the PECO region, covering Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. Residential and small commercial WGES customers who wish to do more for the environment have the option to choose 100 percent WGES PA Carbon Offsets to counterbalance all the carbon emissions from their natural gas usage. Large commercial customers can customize the percent of their natural gas that is matched with carbon offsets. “Offering the WGES PA Carbon Offsets product in partnership with the Pennsylvania Environmental Council and Washington Gas Energy Services results in tangible benefits throughout the state,” said Alden Hathaway, senior vice president of business development at Sterling Planet. “Sterling Planet will continue to explore clean energy options that result in local environmental improvements.” "This creekside buffer project is just the first step in our efforts to work with our partners to protect the Jenkintown Creek,” said Julie Slavet, executive director, Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership, Inc. “Today's planting would not be possible without the support of all of our funders, volunteers and hosts. Our success across our watershed depends on our ability to engage with stakeholders like the ones we are working with today. " This event is the first of several planned tree plantings supported by the $11,625 donation, with another scheduled at the Four Mills Preserve in Ambler, Pa. on October 25. Part of an ongoing effort to restore a 57-acre floodplain preserve bordering the Wissahickon Creek, next Sunday’s event will entail the planting of 100 native trees and shrubs by approximately 35 volunteers.

Carbon Credit Environmental Services

Carbon Credit Environmental Services builds alternative energy sources through projects including anaerobic digestion systems, reforestation, solar energy systems, and wind energy farms. These projects are funded through the purchase of carbon credits, a program that offsets the greenhouse gas and carbon dioxide emissions that all companies produce.

The SRT Group

The SRT Group, Inc. (SRT) is a technology oriented firm focused on developing and licensing energy technologies. SRT has developed and patented advanced halogen-based processes for: nn‚· electrical energy storage,nn‚· renewable hydrogen production,nn‚· biowaste (carbonaceous waste) treatment,nn‚· multi-emission (SOx, NOx, Hg, HAPs) control,nn‚· solar energy conversion to heat & electricity,nn‚· liquid fuel production from hydrogen,nn‚· sour-gas (H2S) sweetening, andnn‚· greenhouse gas reduction. nnThe enforcement of the Clean Air & Water Acts, renewable portfolio standards, growth in peak electric demand, and the rise in oil & natural gas prices create an immediate opportunity for SRT's patented processes. The company's near-term goal is to develop the biowaste to biofuel technology with energy storage, followed by the clean-coal & sour-gas technologies, and eventually SRT's solar processes. The solar technology will integrate all the SRT processes into a benign total energy system suitable for most of the planet.

Conserval Systems

The SolarWall heating and ventilation system aims to deliver one of energy ROIs possible in the commercial and industrial sector. The all-metal solar system is building integrated and heats the ventilation air that is required in commercial and industrial buildings using a perforated plate or transpired collector. Conserval Engineering invented this technology, which was subsequently branded as "SolarWall", and it has single-handedly set the standard for the global solar air heating sector because of its high efficiency and low cost. It is also a source of greenhouse gas reductions, with each 5m2 (53 ft2) displacing 1 ton of CO2 each and every year. The SolarWall technology has received commendation from both the US and the Canadian Government, with the US Department of Energy referring to it as "the most reliable, best performing, and lowest cost solar heating system for commercial and industrial buildings available on the market today". As well, the technology qualifies for up to 6 LEED points.
