For Immediate Release: Oct. 26, 2010



Renewable energy industry proponents honored




GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Oct. 26, 2010) The Greater Phoenix Economic Council recently extended their appreciation to Mayor Cavanaugh and all Councilmembers, Representatives Jerry Weiers and Steve Montenegro for their support of GPEC?s efforts to expand the renewable energy industry in Arizona.



SB1403 Renewable; High Wage Incentives was passed and signed into law during the 49th Legislature First Regular Session with the support of these individuals.

SB1403 created a new tax incentive program with refundable income tax credits and property tax incentives for companies expanding or locating new renewable energy operations in Arizona.



The creation of this incentive program was instrumental to bringing Suntech, the world's largest manufacturer of crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules, to Goodyear.



Weiers and Montenegro are the legislative representatives for District 12, which includes the City of Goodyear.
