For nearly two centuries, Appalachia has powered America with energy—from coal to oil to gas.  We are the backbone of the American economy.  But the world is changing all around us.  We need safe, reliable energy that builds wealth here at home.  Renewable energy is the opportunity Appalachia has been waiting for to rebuild our towns and diversify our economy.  But it will only come here if we work together to repower our communities.

WV SUN is leading the transition across West Virginia—helping towns and communities develop renewable energy projects and programs that will sustain our economies and our planet for the long haul, while making sure we continue to power America.

We fight for the little guys—the non-profits, homeowners and farmers that can’t afford the constant rate increases.  We work with towns with long, proud histories that need new industries and new jobs.  We’re looking to a future that’s locally grown—with power and good livings to be made in the hollers.
