Advances in policy by state and local government and the Arizona Corporation Commission have created both market development and supply chain investment opportunities in Arizona. Important industry players have responded by investing in the State, but more needs to be done to create a true industry cluster. Additional progress requires understanding solar technologies and the factors important for developing and strengthening their supply chains. An opportunity exists to define the important value chains for a robust industry in Arizona, to identify core needs of players in the chain, and to work across the collaboration to meet those needs.
More investment in solar energy production and supply chain capacity is attracted to Arizona as a result of tighter linkages within the cluster. These linkages extend among the value chains, the talent development systems, the research base, investors, and public policies.
