Repowering Appalachia

with Hometown Energy

At Solar Holler, we relentlessly pursue innovative approaches that bring solar within reach of the people and places who have always been left out. 

Our very first project won Interfaith Power & Light’s National Renewable Role Model award for our first-of-its-kind crowdfunding program with non-profits.  We use our deep knowledge of energy policy and financing to build programs that work—even in Appalachia.  Faced with unprecedented demand in the state, we worked with partners to launch the first solar job training and apprenticeship program in West Virginia—bringing jobs and opportunities to the coalfields.   Now, all across West Virginia, our teams of trained and talented electricians and installers are building beautiful solar systems that are remaking our state.  

Solar Holler is a full service solar developer and installer for all West Virginians.  We are a rare breed—a fully licensed electrical contracting firm with policy and financing expertise, a finger on the pulse of cutting edge technology, and an absolute commitment to using the power of solar energy to revitalize Appalachian communities.    

Our Energy programs

Solar @ Home

Across Appalachia, we're working with dozens of families this year to help them mine the sun for clean energy to affordably power their homes and lives.  

From system design to engineering to affordable financing to installation, we're the experts in helping West Virginian families go solar with no upfront cost.  

Solar @ Work


Whether you're an architect, a mechanic, or a farmer, Solar Holler can help you cut your energy bills at work--allowing you to reinvest in what matters for your business.  We work with businesses of all sizes to figure out what makes sense. From design and installation, to deciphering federal tax credits, USDA, and utility incentives, we can help. 

Solar in the Community


Solar Holler got its start developing award-winning and groundbreaking financing programs for West Virginia's non-profits.  It wasn't an after-thought.

Helping community organizations do more good is at the center of everything we do.  From solar to energy efficiency, we line up the financing, install and maintain the equipment, and work with organizations so that they can devote their resources to the mission--not to electricity bills.

Solar Holler helped Harmony House swap out all of our lighting in our offices and homeless shelter to LEDs with no upfront cost. Now our office is brighter and better-lit. And we’ve cut our Appalachian Power bills, allowing us to better care for our homeless neighbors here in Huntington.
