Mohawk Group and Groundswell to unveil smartflower solar system

June 11, 2018

Calhoun, Ga.—As part of Mohawk Group’s ongoing commitment to leaving more “handprints” than footprints, the commercial flooring company will join Groundswell and other project partners to unveil a smartflower solar system on Wednesday, June 13, from 8-8:30 a.m. at the Renaissance Collaborative in south Chicago, with a reception to immediately follow.

During a brief program, Mohawk Group and Groundswell will unveil the first of 10 smartflower systems that will be established across the U.S. as part of the launch and certification of five new products. Attendees will see a demonstration of the technology and learn how the partnership will bring the benefits of solar energy and new educational opportunities to the Bronzeville community.

The goal of the partnership is to bring the benefits of clean solar energy to communities of concern and to educational institutions with STEM programs. Mohawk Group is sponsoring the program as a “handprinting” strategy for the Living Product Challenge Petal Certification of five new carbon-neutral flooring products that will launch next week at NeoCon. Later this year, additional smartflower systems will be installed in New York, Washington and Eden, N.C.
