SARASOTA, FL – Local solar installation company Brilliant Harvest recently completed the installation and flipped the switch on the 132.84 kW solar energy system at the new Sheriff Tom Knight Support Services Facility in Nokomis (the ribbon-cutting for this new facility took place in October of 2020). The system includes 328 Florida-made Jinko panels, installed on the main 42,650-square-foot building. The system will produce close to 200,000 kWh – 200 MWh – of energy annually.
This is the largest solar energy system ever installed by Sarasota County, part of the County’s overall sustainability efforts. The county recently earned two Green Globes from the Green Building Initiative for its commitment to sustainability practices and reducing environmental impacts.
