Energy (WV, USA)

Our project idea is to explore energy sources, reliability, use and ideas from your area of the world.
West Virginia is rich in coal resources and natural gas. Coal mining is common here and coal is our main source of electricity. In the past couple of years, many parts of WV including our area particularly have entered into a natural gas rush. There are many new gas wells going in and they are using a new drilling process called horizontal drilling. There are some concerns about the environment. If you would like to learn more you can google Marcellus Shale and many things come up.
We have been working on a project about the natural gas rush because many people are not aware of it. Even here where it is happpening. We thought it was important to educate ourselves and the community about.
Where does your electricity come from?
Is it reliable?
What are some problems with your energy sources?
Do you have natural resources for energy in your area?
Is it expensive and has the price been changing?
Are there problems with the environment in your area concerning resource use?
What are your concerns about energy use?
What do you think are the best energy sources to develop in the future in your area?

We would also like to know what kind of energy sources we should develop for the health of our world.
Thank you,
We look forward to hearing about where you live and what you think about energy use in our future.
