Currently, AES has more than 1,600 MW of planned clean energy development across Arizona, providing customers in the state with continuous access to clean energy without consuming scarce water resources. In addition, these renewable energy projects can deliver millions of dollars in property tax income to local and state governments to fund local services and infrastructure and create new economic development opportunities.
AES is committed to being a good neighbor with responsible clean energy development that benefits the environment and Arizona communities. We collaborate with local communities to determine how to best work together for sustainable and socially responsible economic development. Our wind farms create hundreds of construction and operational jobs. In addition, we have worked diligently to bring community benefits through employee volunteerism, charitable donations, and meaningful partnerships.
