The Vote Solar Initiative
In fall 2011, Vote Solar commissioned the Seidman Research Institute to produce an independent evaluation of the state’s solar industry.
Focusing primarily upon employment and other macro-economic impacts, the objectives of this proposal were to:
- Objectively evaluate the current solar industry in Arizona in terms of direct and indirect employment benefits, gross state product, disposable income and tax revenues; and
- Investigate and assess the full implications of different policy scenarios from a generation capacity, employment, environmental and economic perspective.
