The solar revolution makes sense for one local doctor.
West Virginia has plenty of natural resources that for a reasonable price can support alternative and renewable energy.
When Dr. Lance McCoy's son joined the military last year the doctor became interested in renewable energy and making over his business.
"The realization of how much time and effort and energy we spend protecting our oil interests around the world and I was able to be ignorant of that for years because i'm a civilian," McCoy says. "But that really opened my eye and I wanted to do something now."
Solar Energy Solutions of Parkersburg outfitted Dr. McCoy's business to be energy efficient with solar panels on the roof.
The panels are expected to last 25 years and he says the immediate payoff is saving money on your electric bill and helping the environment.
