BITHGROUP Technologies and Bithenergy host Advance Placement Environmental Science Students on a Renewable Energy Field Trip to Chimes International of Baltimore and Nixon’s Farms in Howard County

On Thursday, March 9, 2017, BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc. and Bithenergy, Inc. hosted thirty-five students and two teachers from the Western School of Technology and Environmental Science on a full day field trip to learn more about Maryland’s robust solar industry. 

Starting out in West Baltimore at Chimes International, an organization that supports people with disabilities and special needs, the students had the opportunity to tour a completed solar panel installation.  This installation consists of three roof-mount solar installations (225KW), an onsite solar ground array (700 KW), as well as an energy monitoring system that tracks energy usage, visible in the Chimes lobby.  At Chimes, the students also had the opportunity to meet with the President of Chimes, Mr. Terence Blackwell, and they learned more about Chimes and the impact of this renewable energy project. 

Later the students visited the Nixon’s Farm installation in Howard County, where they observed and discussed larger solar installations and their impact on the community and environment.  This installation includes a 1.5 MW Ground Mount Solar array that provides energy to Chimes and a 2 MW Ground Mount array that provides power to the Columbia Association of Howard County. 

The field trip concluded with an industry overview and company specific presentation in an office environment which exposed the students to the many career opportunities and other facets in the industry.  The students learned about Energy Audits, Commissioning, LEED Certifications, Power Purchase Agreements, Solar Renewable Energy Projects and Renewable Energy Project Financing.  The students also engaged in discussion with Bithenergy staff about how we can all change our behaviors at home to be more environmentally responsible. 

Finally, the students learned about how various engineering disciplines, such as chemical, electrical, civil, mechanical, environmental, mathematical and business areas such as accounting, finance, marketing, management, can all be utilized to work in an industry in which they can build a strong career while also engaging in improving the environment.  The students asked insightful questions and demonstrated a strong foundational knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math.

Robert L. Wallace wins the "Unsung Hero Award" at the Small Business Association's Award Ceremony

On June 15, 2016 Dr. Robert L. Wallace was awarded the "Unsung Hero Award" at Small Business Association's Award Ceremony Luncheon. He received the award due to his unique approach to addressing economic hardships that loomed ahead of BITHGROUP Technologies during the crash of 2008. Wallace was able to shift focus to new ventures, rather than lay off employees. This dynamic idea gave birth to Bithenergy, now one of Baltimore's leading Renewable Energy Companies. Below is an excerpt from the letter to the Small Business Association, nominating Wallace for the award. 

Since I began my tenure in 2004 I have watched Mr. Wallace lead our company and other small business leaders through many storms. Wallace is consistently ahead of the curve.  In difficult times when other small businesses faith is failing he has a knack for knowing the precise moment to turn the corner and point our company into a new and exciting direction.  He calls it a “pivot point”. 

When the U.S. economy began to spiral fear struck a lot of small businesses. Our phones began to ring off the hook from small business owners seeking wisdom and guidance from Mr. Wallace.  Robert encouraged each and every business owner to ride out the storm.  He inspired them to find their niche, stay focused, and operate in excellence. Our company was not exempt.  We were faced with some of the same issues as the other small businesses, however, Robert pivoted and introduced new lines of business in the areas of energy and biometrics to our team.   Both areas of business proved to be very lucrative not only for our company but for the community in the area of job creation.

BITHGROUP Founder and CEO, Robert L. Wallace receives the Joseph S. Tyler, Jr. Award

On Friday, June 3, 2016, Founder and Chief Operating Officer Robert L. Wallace of BITHGROUP Technologies received the Joseph Tyler Award from the National Technical Association in recognition for his lifelong contributions to expanding the opportunities of minorities and minority youth in the technology arena. Dr. Wallace also delivered the key note speech entitle" Preparing our Youth for Technological Global Economy" which focused on informing youth how they can better prepare themselves to leverage technology and the entrepreneurial spirit to participate in the global economy.  BITHGROUP actively works with minority youth annually through sponsoring internships to high school and collegiate students. 

The National Technical Association, Inc. was established in 1926.  Its purpose was to create a medium for expressing minority professional concerns for the lack of minority participation in the mainstream of architectural and engineering activity in America.

Today this goal has not changed, but has expanded to include a major concern for the participation of minority youth in meeting the challenge of modern technology.  Also for youth who have dropped from the challenge, NTA encourages them to seek allied programs to suit their interest and needs.

NTA architectural, engineering and scientific membership volunteers its services nationally to assist public institutions in identifying potential minority technical talent.  Public Institutions where the service is encouraged includes high schools, colleges and in the recent past, penal institutions.  NTA has spent the ensuing years gaining nation attention through its programs of encouragement to students and professionals alike.  The organization has enlarged its goals beyond just gaining economic recognition to include making minority youth aware of the opportunities being made available to them.
