Adam Edelen is the founder of Edelen Renewables. He’s working to bring jobs and investment to coal country by building massive solar farms on reclaimed strip mines, and he’s working with coal companies and renewable energy developers to do it. We had a great conversation with him and he gave me a tour of his first coal-to-solar project in Martin County, Kentucky. This is an incredibly exciting development for Appalachia and a fantastic way to put reclaimed mines, out of work miners, and abandoned fossil fuel infrastructure to work building a new clean energy economy.
Please share the show with a friend or give us a review! Thanks!
