Shaw Installing Solar Panels at Georgia Floor Facility
October 10, 2013,
CARTERSVILLE, Ga.-Shaw Industries Group is installing solar panels on the roof of its carpet tile manufacturing facility here.
Construction is expected to be completed some time this month. When it is finished, the installation is expected to produce approximately 1.4 million kilowatt hours of power a year, enough (according to a Shaw statement) to power 100 homes in Georgia each year. Feeding into the Georgia Power electric grid, Shaw will use the energy to help power the plant.
