Renewable energy office coming to Arizona

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced creation of four Renewable Energy Coordination Offices, one each in California, Nevada, Wyoming, and Arizona, along with smaller renewable energy teams in New Mexico, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Oregon.

The prime targets are solar power with an estimated 6,000+ megawatts of proposed capacity - mostly in California, Arizona, and New Mexico - and wind energy, but I hope they'll be equally aggressive in fostering geothermal development. [right, Arizona geothermal resources. Credit DOE]
