Largest solar project for nonprofit organization in West Virginia nearly complete


A 376-solar panel project at Coalfield Development’s West Edge Factory in the Westmoreland area of Huntington is the largest for a nonprofit organization in West Virginia.

“The installation of these 376 panels is the culmination of many years of collaboration between Solar Holler and Coalfield Development,” said Coalfield Development CEO Brandon Dennison. “Our conservation coordinator, Jacob Hannah, worked with Dan Conant and his team at Solar Holler to make this a reality, and our community is better off for it.”

Dennison called it “much more than a simple solar installation project.”

“This was a workforce development, community engagement and green infrastructure project all wrapped into one,” he said.
Hannah said the total cost of the project is $184,000. It will generate 122.2 kilowatts of power with 150,500 kilowatt hours in annual production.
