This month The Western Way, in partnership with the Yuma County Chamber of Commerce, released a study with assistance from CoNecs NA showing that from 2001 to 2017, 34 rural renewable projects in Arizona generated $9.4 billion in economic activity, 17,971 jobs, $1.2 billion in wages to paid to Arizona employees, and $16.7 million in state and local tax revenues.
