Solar Co-ops Come to W.Va., Turning Grafton Around and Estimated Homeless Number Growing in State


Two communities in West Virginia are trying out solar power, but pooling their resources to do so. They’ve started solar co-ops, meant to help save them money while benefiting the environment. Community teams in Grafton are putting the finishing touches on their project proposals for the Turn This Town Around Project. Of the more than 30 teams who are submitting individual plans for ways to help revitalize their community, about 20 groups will receive funding, and we revisit the Union Mission in Charleston to share the story of its executive director, a man who spent 17 years of his life homeless.
