WVC 24- CHAPTER 24. PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION.
WVC 24 - 2 D- ARTICLE 2D. ALTERNATIVE FUEL INITIATIVES.

WVC 24 - 2 D- 1 §24-2D-1. Legislative findings.

The Legislature finds that there is growing concern about the environment and our state's and nation's dependence on foreign oil.

The Legislature further finds that this state has an abundant supply of alternative fuels and an extensive supply network, and that by encouraging the use of alternative fuels in new demonstration technologies such as alternative fuel vehicles, the state will be reducing dependence on foreign oil and promoting improved air quality. Accordingly, the Legislature finds that it is in the public interest to have the public service commission develop and implement programs designed to encourage the use of West Virginia alternative fuels as vehicle fuels and in other new demonstration technologies.

WVC 24 - 2 D- 2 §24-2D-2. Incentives for use of alternative fuels in new technologies.

(a) For purposes of this section, "alternative fuel vehicles" shall mean motor vehicles whose primary source of fuel is natural gas, methanol, and/or electricity.

(b) Upon a finding that it is in the public interest of this state to authorize the same, as provided in section one, article one of this chapter, the public service commission shall authorize ratemaking allowances for public utilities to encourage the use of alternative fuel in new demonstration technologies, including alternative fuel vehicles, which provide incentives to encourage investments in such technologies.

WVC 24 - 2 D- 3 §24-2D-3. Limitation on commission jurisdiction over sales by nonutilities of alternative fuel for certain purposes.

Notwithstanding any provision of this chapter to the contrary, the public service commission shall have no jurisdiction over the ultimate sale by nonutilities of alternative fuel to be utilized solely as fuel for motor vehicles.
