On September 29, Huntington city officials and representatives from Coalfield Development flipped the switch on a 294-panel solar array on the nonprofit’s building in Huntington. Coalfield Development trains coal miners to transition to renewable energy jobs. This solar installation is the largest for any nonprofit in West Virginia.
The building, known as West Edge, houses several nonprofit enterprises, including Solar Holler which did the solar panel installation.
The total cost of the project was $184,000. It will generate 122.2 kilowatts of power with 150,500 kilowatt hours in annual production. The solar array will offset the usage of all the businesses in West Edge and save Coalfield Development itself over $135,000.
