|WVDOE Funding opportunity
A new WVDOE program, funded by the Appalachian Regional Commission, will increase renewable energy and reforestation projects on surface-mined lands. Competitive cost-share sub-grants will be issued by WVDOE to fund projects with the potential to yield sustainable biomass energy production or meet reforestation purposes, wind generation of electricity and solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar power applications on surface-mined lands in West Virginia. In addition to renewable energy projects, this RFP will include the option to fund agriculture-based projects that utilize surface-mine land and have the potential to contribute to sustainable economic development in the region. Marshall University’s Center for Environmental, Geotechnical and Applied Sciences will administer individual grants.
