West Virginia’s early history from 1609 until 1863 is largely shared with Virginia, of which it was a part until Virginia seceded from the Union in 1861. The delegates of the 40 western counties who opposed secession formed their own government, which was granted statehood in 1863.

The state is working untiringly toward developing green infrastructure, sustainable communities, promising energy technologies, and clean energy policies. Some of the projects include: Recovery Act Investments in Clean Energy; Appliance Efficiency Standards; Efficiency Standards for Vehicles; monitoring emissions; protecting water bodies; land conservation; restoring ecosystems; limiting mercury emissions into the environment; minimizing adverse environmental consequences of mountaintop coal mining; and passing the National Environmental Policy Act that enhances the quality of public involvement in governmental decisions relating to the environment and easing implementation. The government is also adopting a variety of easy approaches to yield quantifiable results in greening fleets, including avoiding unnecessary travel and using alternative-fuel vehicles.
