The purpose of this paper is to attempt to throw some small light upon the hitherto relatively unexplored and uncharted field concerning the desire of the State of West Virginia, through its Supreme Court of Appeals and its Public Service Commission, to act as a guardian of the social interests of the state and its people. This discussion will be limited in its scope to the determination of whether these two bodies have ever considered such social interests when determining the reasonableness of the rates to be charged to patrons by the public utilities in this state.
