The former Roanoke Valley Energy facility is a 114-acre former coal-fired power generation site in Weldon that was decommissioned in 2018. Halifax County Business Horizons, Inc. entered into a purchase agreement for the site and with funding from the NC Department of Commerce and Halifax County, completed demolition and clearance of the heavy industrial site. This partnership resulted in the successful transformation of the site that will soon be the home to Roanoke Valley Lumber, a renewable resource manufacturing facility that will invest $200 million in Weldon/Halifax County and create 137 well-paying jobs for our citizens.
