Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Economic Transition


In March 2017, OVEC released a 28-page special edition newspaper, Renew West Virginia.  The paper examines the health and pollution impacts of the fracking boom in other areas of West Virginia, and details fracking-related projects proposed for the greater Huntington area. It also explores the nationwide growth of renewable energy and related jobs, with a focus on the renewable energy efforts underway in Cabell and Wayne counties.

In 2014, OVEC and Mountain View Solar (MVS), working as partners, were accepted into the Appalachian Transition Fellowship Program, a project of the non-profit Highlander Center, based in Eastern Tennessee.

Our fellow for the year-long program was Tyler Cannon. He created a booklet of renewable energy and energy efficiency success stories — replete with energy savings and job creation — right here in West Virginia.

We are grateful to the Highlander Center and One Foundation for their generous financial support of Cannon’s fellowship and this project.
