Our first “coal-to-solar” project, deep in the heart of central Appalachia has been described as the “most iconic renewable energy project in America.”
The project represents a capital investment of more than $230m and will employ hundreds of out-of-work miners. The innovative nature of this one-of-a-kind partnership between a coal company and a renewable energy firm to drive economic transition was featured in the award winning documentary “The Human Element” and has captured the attention of the national and global media, from the New York Times. CNET, SkyTV, Fast Company to the Wall Street Journal and CNN.
In short, we’re making
a big difference in
places that need it.
Beyond our coal-to-solar projects, we’re working hard to drive true social impact on superfund sites and in rural communities facing hardship in the agricultural and manufacturing sectors.
