State House approves alternative fuels incentives
Mississippians can get a tax break for driving an alternative energy car or for constructing an alternative energy fueling station if legislation that passed the state House on Wednesday becomes law.
“We are trying to incentivize alternative energy to the point it reaches critical mass,” said Rep. Hank Zuber, R-Ocean Springs.
The legislation would provide tax credits for vehicles that run off natural gas, propane, hydrogen fuel cells and similar technology. It would not include electric cars, but Zuber said they might be added later in the process.
“We are not trying to pick winners,” said Zuber, who added he wants to include “all viable alternative fuels” in the legislation.
