The article provides information on the Solar Electric Roadmap Study in Arizona. The purpose of the study is to promote the adoption of solar power and to develop a solid solar electric industry in the state. The study estimates that up to 1,000 megawatts (MW) of solar electricity could be accomplished in the area by 2020. According to the study, the drive will contribute to the state's power production and will provide an economic benefit.
