SARASOTA, FL – While the COVID-19 pandemic is the immediate crisis unfolding at the moment, mitigating climate change continues to be an urgent issue. Solar PV (photovoltaic) installation is one way to help reduce greenhouse gases from fossil fuels and fight climate change. Solar Power World has recognized the efforts of solar contractors across the United States in its 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, where local solar installer Brilliant Harvest earned a rank of 352 of companies from across the country and 34th in the State of Florida.
The Top Solar Contractors list is developed each year by Solar Power World to honor the work of solar installers big and small. Solar firms in the utility, commercial and residential markets are ranked by number of kilowatts installed in the previous year. Companies are grouped and listed by specific service (developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, installation subcontractors, rooftop installers), markets and states.
“For over a decade, Brilliant Harvest has been proud to introduce homeowners, businesses, nonprofit organizations and religious institutions to the benefits of solar energy,” said Brilliant Harvest founder and president Bill Johnson. “We help nonprofits to save money on their power bills, we enable businesses to go net-zero and strengthen their bottom line, and make it possible for those who are passionate about the environment to feel good about reducing their impact on the planet. We’re thrilled to be included on the Solar Power World Top Solar Contractors list this year!”
Brilliant Harvest employs 10 workers who installed 620.8 kW of solar power in 2019. Since its founding in 2009, the company has installed more than 2,064 kW of solar power and just under 400 kW of energy storage – Brilliant Harvest is a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer. Notable projects in 2019 included the 200,220-watt system at Sarasota not-for-profit Girls Inc., which is the largest solar energy system in Sarasota County, and the installation of solar panels on two custom-designed steel canopies that offer shade while producing clean energy in the marketplace area of the recently-opened St. Pete Pier.
“The Solar Power World team is so pleased to highlight more than 400 companies on the 2020 Top Solar Contractors list, especially during this unprecedented time,” said Kelsey Misbrener, senior editor of Solar Power World. “All contractors featured on the 2020 list reported strong 2019 installation numbers and are continuing to stand tall this year.”
