As millennials living and working in West Virginia, we want to live in strong, healthy, vibrant communities where opportunity abounds. We want our elected officials to recognize and embrace new opportunities to strengthen and diversify our state’s economy. And we want to help build a brighter future for the state we love by advocating for smart, fair policies that benefit local residents and communities.
Renewable energy resources like solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and biomass increasingly offer affordable, reliable, secure local energy options for West Virginia households, communities, businesses, and institutions. More West Virginians could benefit from these affordable energy options — and the good new jobs, increased entrepreneurship, and corporate investment that come with them — if state leaders create a policy environment that encourages competition and diversification within our rapidly evolving 21st century energy system.
