As part of its sustainability efforts to leave more handprints than footprints, Mohawk Group has partnered with the Griffin-Spalding County School System and SUNCATCH ENERGY to install a smartflower™ solar energy unit in Griffin, Ga. The smartflower technology was unveiled at a special ribbon-cutting event and reception at Griffin Region College and Career Academy. The solar energy project the first in Georgia that is part of the Mohawk Group initiative is the third of 10 smartflowers to be established by the Georgia-based flooring manufacturer across the US Other units have been installed in Chicago and Eden, NC. Another will be unveiled later this week in Cocoa, Fla.

Griffin Region College and Career Academy was chosen as the recipient of the smartflower unit through a special competition coordinated by Mohawk. The new solar energy unit will help to offset the power consumption and utilities costs at the school while also providing students with learning opportunities focused around alternative energy sources.

The smartflower installation in Georgia is part of an ongoing social impact strategy for a selection of Living Product Challenge Petal certified flooring products within Mohawk Group’s larger portfolio. Each smartflower optimizes the generation of solar energy using modular petal-shaped panels that autonomously follow the sun throughout the day. The solar energy collaboration was created to reduce Mohawk’s greenhouse gas emissions and offset energy and resources used during some of its manufacturing processes.
