Shepherd University Hopes Solar Project Inspires Similar Work In Rest Of W.Va.

Sep 18, 2019

On this West Virginia Morning, Shepherd University’s campus library is home to the largest solar panel installation on a nonprofit in West Virginia. As Liz McCormick reports, the staff who pushed for the installation are hopeful the achievement will inspire more organizations and homeowners in the state to turn to solar power.

Also on today’s show, while the rest of the country might be trying to figure out how to get more police officers into schools to help reduce the risk of school shootings, Louisville just did the opposite. Last year, 30 officers were patrolling the hallways; this year: zero. WFPL’s Liz Schlemmer has more on the reactions to this controversial decision.
