Roanoke Group

The Roanoke Group of the Sierra Club Virginia Chapter represents 10 counties and over 800 members. 

Though there are many environmental issues, our primary focus is rapid climate change. If we fail to address this growing threat, nothing else will matter. The most effective way to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases is to transition to renewable energy, with wind being the biggest producer and solar making encouraging gains. 

According to American Clean Power, Virginia ranks 35th with 6.2% of the electricity generated within the state coming from solar and energy storage plants. We still have no wind farms.

Our work is cut out for us here in Southwest Virginia.
