In the last couple of years, new ventures are opening in West Virginia as a result of intentional initiatives to attract clean energy businesses to fill the voids left by a downsizing coal economy. These include electric school bus manufacturer GreenPower Motor, electric pontoon boat builder Pure Watercraft, a $500 million titanium product manufacturing plant, a battery storage cell factory and a 250-megawatt solar farm. Developers for these and others are incentivized to revitalize former coalfield communities with federal funds through the Brownfields program, the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill.
