SARASOTA, FL – Bill Johnson, founder and president of solar contractor Brilliant Harvest, LLC has earned his certification as a solar PV (photovoltaic) installer from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP). This certification is the highest professional certification that can be earned in the solar energy industry and puts Johnson into an elite group: there are currently only 43 total NABCEP Certified PV Installers in Florida.
NABCEP was founded in 2002 as a non-profit 501(c)(6) corporation with a mission “to support, and work with, the renewable energy and energy efficiency industries, professionals, and stakeholders to develop and implement quality credentialing and certification programs for practitioners.” NABCEP’s goal is to develop voluntary national certification programs that will: promote renewable energy, provide value to solar installation and sales professionals, promote worker safety and skill, encourage consumer confidence, and promote professionals who choose to become certified demonstrate their competence in the field and their commitment to upholding high standards of ethical and professional practice.
“NABCEP certification is confirmation of the commitment that Brilliant Harvest has toward technical and professional quality, and ethical behavior in our business relationships,” said Johnson. “Since our founding, Brilliant Harvest has worked to deliver the best solar products and services to our clients, and this is validation of that dedication. This achievement represents an established and nationally respected third party saying, ‘Brilliant Harvest is one of the best in solar.'”
Johnson notes that the NABCEP certification is a true seal of approval, and is becoming a prerequisite qualification for certain solar projects. He notes that, particularly in a field where new technologies are emerging constantly, it is important that installers are committed to staying on top of trends and technology; the NABCEP certification represents a commitment to ongoing training and real-world expertise.
