BRIDGEPORT, W.Va (WDTV) – West Virginia will receive over $100 million from the Environmental Protection Agency to expand solar energy technology.

The Department of Energy will use the funds to lower energy costs and strengthen the West Virginia energy grid in support of the state’s Resilient Roofs Program.

The program will help bring solar infrastructure to residential homes and residential buildings at various colleges statewide.

In a letter to the EPA last month, Senator Manchin said that low-income and rural residents of the state would benefit the most from this investment.

This is all part of a $7 billion grant nationwide, and the EPA says that the funding will support solar projects for nearly a million households nationwide.
