Investing in renewable energy isn't just good for the environment, but it also makes good economic sense. From small businesses to large manufacturing facilities, renewable energy projects are generating county revenues and jobs as well as clean energy.
The combination of smart policy decisions and electric power consumers' demand for clean energy is powering the region economically. Since 1998, there has been over $21 billion in renewable energy development, bringing with it more than $500 million in public revenues and 17,000 jobs to Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. In addition, rural landowners are seeing regular payments from renewable energy projects on their property that provides a steady income stream for economic stability. Renewable energy projects provide all these benefits in addition to moving us towards a clean energy future.
 
It quite clear that renewable energy investment is good for a strong business climate as well as the global climate.
