The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this article about Maharishi University of Management* alumnus Troy Van Beek. Troy's solar energy installation was recently recognized as ''solar project of the year'' by Solar Builder magazine.

The project earning recognition by Solar Builder magazine involved repurposing a former school building in Iowa, USA into a 39-unit apartment complex, powered by a 300-kW solar array. The array included a 100-kW carport and a 200-kW installation on the roof.

About Troy Van Beek:
Troy's diverse background includes nine years in the U.S. Navy Seals as a Special Forces medic, and personal security details in hostile environments, such as the Middle East and Africa. After years of heart-pumping, high-profile work, Troy's path of action led him to explore alternative methods for creating global security. Troy's inquiries into the depths of our pressing socioeconomic and environmental challenges brought him to Maharishi University of Management, where he earned a degree in Sustainability.

Troy has followed his passion for creating self-sufficiency through community involvement. After a year of serving as a member of the Go Green Commission for Fairfield, Iowa, where he participated in creating a comprehensive sustainability plan for the City, Troy founded Ideal Energy, Inc., to begin helping the city to fulfill the steps outlined in the plan. Although Ideal Energy's clientele has broadened to a national level, Troy remains dedicated to implementing renewable energy solutions in his hometown of Fairfield, Iowa.
