Nanak’s Landscaping Uses Florida Grant to Install Solar Energy System

Florida’s Nanak’s Landscaping, a commercial landscaper with overall growth in the $30 million range and branches in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and Sarasota, has used an Alternative Energies Technologies Grant from the state to install a 20.1 kW Solar PV System at their Orlando facility and corporate headquarters.

“The program helped by making suggestions on the quality of materials required and provided a solid profile of what would best suit the grant qualifications,” said Sampuran Khalsa, president of Nanak’s Landscaping. 

“We are actually making more energy than we need and selling the excess power back to the grid,” said Mike Swaggerty, Orlando branch manager for Nanak’s. “Our electric meter is actually spinning backwards.”

In the week following the solar system’s installation on January 19, Nanak’s avoided emitting 1,734 lbs. in greenhouse gases. The company promotes the energy system on its Web site, and uses Fat Spaniels energy monitoring system so that customers, and more importantly, potential customers, can see the energy-savings stats in real time.

Nanak’s also invested in a fleet of Prius Hybrids for regional and operational managers.

  1. How can organizations apply for environment grants from ENVIROMENT LEADER or any other entities funding such projects world over?
    Please provide suggestions where we can forward environmental conservation proposals to mitigate impact of climate change?
