New Smartflower Solar in North Carolina is Rooted in Education

Innovative donation will spawn exciting learning opportunities for students in Eden, NC

Mohawk Group, a leading producer and distributor of quality commercial flooring, and Groundswell have teamed up to locate a new Smartflower™ solar energy unit near three Rockingham County Schools in Eden, North Carolina. The project will bring the benefits of clean solar power to the area, create educational opportunities for students and also contribute to Mohawk’s sustainability efforts to leave more handprints than footprints.

Mohawk Group has engaged in this special partnership with Groundswell to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and offset the energy and resources used during some of its manufacturing processes. Located on the campus of Eden’s Central Elementary School, the Smartflower is located adjacent to Holmes Middle School and Morehead High School. The innovative donation will help to spawn exciting learning opportunities for students at all three schools. 

The solar installation in North Carolina is the second of 10 Smartflowers to be established across the U.S. as part of a three-year partnership between Mohawk Group and Groundswell.
