We coordinate community-based solar projects improving electrical, IT and broadband practices and policies.


Rewire Appalachia is a social enterprise of Coalfield Development Corporation. A social enterprise is a business that combines the compassion of the nonprofit sector with the efficiency of the for-profit sector.

In operation since 2015, Rewire Appalachia drives the still nascent solar and modern technology markets of our area. Rewire aims to triple the amount of solar power emanating from West Virginia and takes the electrical skill-sets learned from solar installations and applies them to a new workforce development system for broadband deployment.
