For generations, Appalachians have powered America. We are determined to continue through the 21st century, with clean energy that empowers our neighbors and renews our communities.
About the Business
At Solar Holler, we relentlessly pursue innovative approaches that make solar the most affordable choice for our neighbors across Appalachia. 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 coal country. 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.
We are a rare breed—a team of talented electricians & roofers, project managers, policy & financing experts, and veteran community organizers – all charged with crafting beautiful solar systems that enable Appalachians to power their lives.
Pay and Benefits
Solar Holler provides our staff with competitive wages, health, child and elder care benefits, profit sharing, travel expenses, 10 paid holidays, ample vacation, as well as a caring, flexible, mission-oriented work environment.
How We Work
We are incredibly proud of our work, and feel a deep responsibility to do it right and well. A just transition to clean energy for Appalachia will not happen on its own—we must lead.
We care about the groups and families we work with, and we always approach projects with their needs in focus. There is no cookie cutter project; every program and project we build we view as a work of art. To enshrine our commitment to our people, our towns, and our mountains, we became a Benefit Corporation–building our mission into our founding documents.
Our efforts have been noticed: We’ve been featured in The New York Times and on NPR; the West Virginia Environmental Council named Solar Holler its 2017 “Green Business of the Year”, Interfaith Power and Light named our first project its National Role Model project, Southern Living Magazine named our founder one of its “50 Southerners of the Year”, and we’ve been recognized by the US Department of Energy for our work bringing solar within reach of our neighbors across Appalachia.
