On this West Virginia Morning, here in West Virginia, one source of energy -- coal -- tends to dominate discussions about the economy. But it’s another form of energy production that brought The World’s Jason Margolis to the state.

Reporters with the show are traveling to visit all 50 states for a series that examines how globalization has been affecting the US. In this story, Margolis introduces us to the minds and muscles behind Solar Holler, a business that’s banking on a bright future for solar energy in Appalachia.
