TUCSON -- Rep. Daniel Patterson, D-Tucson (District 29), received an award today for his efforts in renewable energy from the Greater Phoenix Economic Council and the Arizona Department of Commerce.

“It’s an honor to receive this award because working toward clean energy, a new economy and jobs is what I fight for every day when I go to the state capitol,” Patterson said. “I’m very thankful for GPEC for making this a priority and recognizing the need for Arizona to tap into this industry. I look forward to working with them.”

The award recognizes Patterson for his efforts in renewable energy, specifically his vote for SB 1403, a bill that creates a new tax incentive program with refundable income tax credits and property tax incentives for expanding or locating new renewable energy operations in Arizona.

“Thanks in part to efforts of representatives like Daniel Patterson, Arizona is poised as the nation’s leader in renewable energy and well-positioned for future growth within this vital industry,” said Denise van den Bossche, GPEC Ambassador on behalf of Hill International, Inc, and 2010 Chair, US Green Building Council Central Arizona.
