Solar Advocacy: Expand solar options in West Virginia

Legalize community solar in West Virginia

What is happening

Thousands of West Virginians would like to go solar now. They can’t because their property isn’t right for solar. This might be because of tree cover or other obstacles, or they rent their home or business.

That’s why it is so important for the West Virginia legislature to pass HB 4561.

This law would allow West Virginians to participate in a community solar program.

What is community solar

Community solar offers the benefit of solar to those who can’t, or prefer not to, install solar panels on their homes. These projects enable individuals, businesses, or organizations to purchase or subscribe to a “share” in a community solar project. If you join a community solar project, you receive a credit on your electric bill each month for the energy produced by your share.

Take action

Please contact the Chair and Vice Chair of the House Energy and Manufacturing committee. Ask them to put the community solar bill on their committee’s agenda today!
