Flint River Preserve was awarded the title of four-star green-certified community by the National Association of Home Builders. This certification is based on rigorous standards set forth by the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard™. The program goes well beyond saying a home is energy efficient. It provides independent, third-party verification that a home, apartment building, or land development is designed and built to achieve high performance in six key areas: Site Design, Resource Efficiency, Water Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Building Operation & Maintenance.
Everything within the community is recycled or sustainably sourced. Many of the benches and picnic tables are built from reclaimed wood. The roads are paved with reclaimed and recycled concrete. Georgia Power even has an eight-acre solar farm within Flint River Preserve that generates 1.0 megawatt of solar power. The amount of energy created by these solar panels is greater than what is used within the community. Nothing goes to waste!
Watch a Farm in Operation
In addition to the community orchard and garden, over 100 acres of Flint River Preserve is currently planted in peanuts. Enjoy the unique experience of watching farm operations from the comfort of your home.
