         (By Delegates Howell, Evans, Hamilton, M. Poling,

Rowan and Shaver)

         [Introduced February 21, 2011; referred to the

         Committee on the Judiciary.]

 

 

 

A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §24-2F-11a, relating to the Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Act.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §24-2F-11a, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 2F. ALTERNATIVE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY PORTFOLIO STANDARD.

§24-2F-11a. Wind power facilities.

    Any wind power facility which has been through the process of obtaining necessary permits shall, upon the tract of property for which the necessary operating permits were obtained, be permitted to build an additional set of wind power turbines, within five thousand feet of the original permitted turbines if the construction would not violate any other applicable laws or rules.




    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to allow additional facilities to be built on the site of wind power facilities that are already properly permitted by law.



    §24-2F-11a is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
