Edelen Ventures partnered with the bluechip, Eastern Kentucky-based coal company to monetize their vast landholdings.  The result is a unique deal structure to develop the first-of-its-kind, large scale solar installation on a reclaimed mountaintop coalfield in the heart of Appalachia.  “Bringing diverse partners together to create a multi-layered win is what we do,” said ESV Founder Adam Edelen of the deal that united coal executives and renewable energy developers in creating hundreds of new jobs for displaced miners. The project has garnered national media attention and has been featured in outlets as diverse as Fast Company, SkyTV, The Wall Street Journal, CNET and CNN.
