Home News USFloors adds to its solar collection, will have largest array in Georgia

Dalton—The largest commercial solar panel configuration in Georgia since the 1996 Olympics was commissioned by USFloors, a manufacturer committed to sustainability and environmental awareness. The 144.48 kW solar photovoltaic panels are to be built on the factory site here and should cover around 14,5000 square feet, all visible from Interstate 75, company officials said.
“The array is expected to more than cover the energy needs for our green building, with enough left over to power 10 Georgia homes,” said Piet Dossche, president and CEO. “We have more than quadrupled the amount of solar energy we provide to the community.”
The system was installed by United Renewable Energy and makes USFloors eligible for various federal and state grants and tax credits. Additionally, North Georgia EMC pays the manufacturer a premium for the power it generates.
Along with more than a dozen jobs being created by the installation, Dossche said, others were preserved due too reduced operating costs, developing a new industry and introducing sustainable business to Dalton.
