Ranked the No. 1 Renewable Energy Market in the nation by Business Facilities magazine, Arizona's natural advantage and international investment make the region an easy choice for renewable companies. Its built-in engineering and high-tech talent landed the region as the Top 4 market for engineering talent and according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the state is ranked #1 for solar capacity in the Mountain West. Also setting the region apart is its holistic approach to its renewable energy industry. Greater Phoenix supports and grows generation, manufacturing, headquarters, R&D and transmission projects in a strong operating environment. Arizona is a right-to-work state with low corporate franchise and unemployment taxes and worker's compensation rates among the lowest in the nation. Add to that one of the most aggressive renewable energy incentives in the country and it's easy to see why such world-class companies as Power-One, Rioglass Solar and First Solar choose to call Greater Phoenix home.
