Laws and Regulations

Energy Performance Contract Authorization

Public entities in Mississippi are authorized to enter into energy services and performance contracts to pay for energy efficiency improvements with energy savings, including savings from the use of alternative fuel vehicles and related infrastructure. (Reference Senate Bill 2876, 2019, and Mississippi Code 31-7-14)

Fuel-Efficient and Alternative Fuel Vehicle Use

The State Bureau of Fleet Management (Bureau), operated through the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration, coordinates and promotes fuel efficiency when state agencies purchase, lease, rent, acquire, use, maintain, and dispose of vehicles. The Bureau encourages state agencies to use fuel-efficient or hybrid electric vehicles as appropriate and, when feasible, use alternative fuels, including ethanol, biodiesel, natural gas, or electricity, to operate the vehicles. At least 75% of all vehicles titled under the Bureau must have a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimated fuel economy rating of at least 40 miles per gallon for highway driving. (Reference Mississippi Code 25-1-77)

Plug-In Electric Vehicle and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Fees

In addition to standard registration fees, all-electric vehicle owners must pay an annual fee of $150. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and HEV owners must pay an annual fee of $75. Beginning July 1, 2021, the Mississippi Department of Revenue will increase the fee annually to account for inflation, equal to the increase in the Consumer Price Index for urban consumers for the prior year. (Reference House Bill 1, 2018, and Mississippi Code 27-19-23)
