A *BRILLIANT* WEEK AT FLORIDA HOUSE
APRIL 17, 2014
 
THANK YOU BRILLIANT HARVEST!
A FLORIDA HOUSE LEADING PARTNER

Last week we featured Region Solar as a leading solar partner.  
This week we are excited to feature another of our leading partners,



Earlier this month, 37 solar panels were installed on our main roof each with 260 watts of capacity, totaling approximately 10,000 watts of solar capacity. Brilliant Harvest owner, Bill Johnson, reports that this was a partnership between Brilliant Harvest and Region Solar each supplying a portion of the solar panels and a portion of the inverter technology.
 
Bill reports that they installed an Enphase Microinverter System for a portion of the arrays.  They wanted to create a demonstration of different technologies through different inverter technologies.  The Enphase Microinverter System is a great technology for both residential and small commercial situations. Microinverter technology improves the performance of each panel thereby improving the system as a whole.  This is because the converter doing the work at the panel level is a more granular application than at the array level, making room for more specific customization and monitoring.

According to Bill Johnson, Brilliant Harvest's focus has always been to find the right design for a specific application.  Bill doesn't promote a certain product or system, but rather he recommends just the right product for the situation.
Bill takes pride in tailoring products for the customer. In fact, he personally gets involved and oversees every project.

IT'S FLORIDA LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH
AND OUR NEW PARTNER MICHAEL A. GILKEY, INC.
 IS LEADING THE WAY!
 
Now, this new Press Release is indeed *BRILLIANT* 
APRIL PROCLAIMED FLORIDA LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH 
BY GOV. RICK SCOTT

 

Sarasota, Florida (April 7, 2014) - For the third consecutive year, Florida Governor Rick Scott has proclaimed the month of April as Florida Landscape Architecture Month, a concurrent recognition with the national designation from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA)National Landscape Architecture Month (NLAM) 2014 aims to spur a countrywide movement, teaching children, young adults, and teachers how landscape architects contribute to the design of their world. 

 

Throughout the state, members of the Florida Chapter of ASLA are celebrating in their communities with outreach, education, and public awareness efforts. In Sarasota, landscape architect Michael A. Gilkey, ASLA, is teaming up with Mariposa Nursery to lead Southside Elementary School's youngest students in the design and construction of their very own shoebox butterfly gardens.

"Educating students about our profession is extremely important to me," says Gilkey.  "I serve on the Advisory Council to the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Florida, and I see firsthand how few students entering their college years have an understanding of what landscape architects do, and how they shape our environment. I am excited to join with others throughout the state and nation to try and change that."
