Our Energy programs


Shared Savings Program

Far too many churches, municipalities, and businesses across West Virginia are saddled with costly energy bills due to old and inefficient lighting.  Through our Shared Savings Program, Solar Holler installs and maintains efficient LED lighting for organizations at no up-front cost.  We are simply paid out of the energy savings.


Solar Within Reach Program

Solar Holler is dedicated to bringing solar power within reach of organizations across West Virginia.  In the face of rising electric bills, Solar Holler works with qualified businesses, non-profit organizations, communities of faith, municipalities, individuals and more to go solar.  Solar Holler works with organizations every step of the way including:

  • System design and engineering
  • Energy and financial modeling
  • Creating a workable financing plan 
  • Permitting and procurement
  • Installation

We handle all the details so that all an organization has to have to go solar is a good roof and a desire to cut their electricity bills with clean energy


Center for Mining the Sun

In 2015, Solar Holler, in partnership with the Coalfield Development Corporation, launched West Virginia's first solar job training program.  We are proud and excited to connect young West Virginians in coalfield communities with work in the solar industry.  This is a long term opportunity for each participant as each apprentice joins one of our installation crews for two years, earns an associates degree, and earns NABCEP solar certification.  Every Solar Holler installation - whether for solar or LED lighting - is a learning opportunity and a change to build a thriving economy for all West Virginians.
