Morgantown Farmer’s Market hosts Rise for Renewables event


Renewable energy is something many non-profits are working toward for West Virginia, and a few of those non-profits were in Morgantown on Saturday afternoon to spread awareness.

More than 10 non-profits were at the Morgantown’s weekly Farmer’s Market for the Rise for Renewables event.

Program director for the Solar United Neighbors non-profit organization, Autumn Long, said these non-profits were there to spread the word and educate the public on the benefits of Renewable Energy in West Virginia.

“We’re having an event to celebrate renewables and to promote renewable energy in Morgantown and North Central West Virginia and my organization Solar United Neighbors of West Virginia we are dedicated to helping people go solar, to educating people about solar and advocating for solar,” said Long.

Organizers from this event said this is the first of many events in honor of promoting renewable energy within the state and plan to be back in Morgantown at future Rise for Renewable events.
