Calling all Changemakers!
The West Virginia Environmental Council is gearing up for the 2024 legislative session with several crucial campaigns, and we need your support to make a real impact. And there is even a greater sense of urgency now that the Mountain Valley Pipeline has been exempted from judicial review, placing it above the law and risking our lands and waters. More

URGENT!!! Contact Your Legislators and Support Community Solar!!
Take action TODAY and support community solar in West Virginia! Introduced in the Senate last week, SB 627 creates a community solar program where individuals, businesses, and organizations can purchase or subscribe to a “share” in a locally-sited solar panel array and use credits against their electric utility costs. This bill can lower energy costs, create jobs, and promote energy freedom in our state.  More

Weekly Round-Up
SB448 - Providing funding to the Office of Oil and Gas (O&G) for well inspections, was introduced in the Senate this week. Currently, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) Office of Oil and Gas only has nine inspectors responsible for over 75,000 wells. This bill would double the funding for this office and increase inspector numbers from 9 to around 20. More

Support Community Solar
Currently, many West Virginians want to go solar, but can’t due to shaded roofs, lack of homeownership, cost, etc. Community solar makes it possible for anyone with an electricity bill to save with solar and gives folks the freedom to choose where their energy comes from. But unfortunately, these programs are not legal in West Virginia—yet!   More

Crunch Time Quick Action: Urge Senator Manchin To Include Climate Action in the Reconciliation Package
House and Senate Democrats have come to agreement on most aspects of the reconciliation package with one exception: climate change.  Hanging in the balance is Senator Joe Manchin's opposition to the Clean Electricity Performance Program, which will pay electric utility companies for adopting clean energy sources and penalize ones that don't adopt clean energy by at least 4 percent a year.
