Coal-producing West Virginia is converting an entire school system to solar power

An entire county school system in coal-producing West Virginia is going solar, representing what a developer and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s office touted on Wednesday as the biggest-ever single demonstration of sun-powered renewable electricity in Appalachian public schools.
The agreement between Wayne County Schools and West Virginian solar installer and developer Solar Holler builds on historic investments in coal communities made possible by the Inflation Reduction Act, which Democratic Sen. Manchin had a major role in shaping as chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

    This is a big step forward for the school system, as it will help to reduce its carbon footprint and save money on energy costs.

        Solar energy should be mandatory in all big institutions as a form of energy.
