Eden, N.C.—Mohawk Group will join Groundswell, a nonprofit that develops community solar projects and subscriber management programs that connect solar power with economic empowerment for the communities served, and other project partners here to unveil a new smartflower solar energy unit located near three Rockingham County schools in the community’s central area.
Taking place on November 29, attendees will experience a demonstration of the technology and learn how the partnership will bring the benefits of solar energy and educational opportunities for students. The new unit is the second of 10 smartflowers to be established across the U.S. as part of a three-year partnership.
The goal of the partnership, the company said, is to bring the benefits of clean solar energy to educational institutions with STEM programs and provide unique learning opportunities. Mohawk Group is sponsoring the program as a hand printing strategy for its latest Living Product Challenge Petal certified flooring products.
