As many states vie to be selected as Amazon's second headquarters, local chambers from across North Carolina - where Amazon has already invested in a wind farm - gathered last month to discuss how local chambers and state legislators could work together to attract investments from corporations that are increasingly demanding renewable energy.
Here are a few highlights.
“Over the next 30 years, Pasquotank County will receive $480 million in county and landowner payments from Amazon’s wind farm. Between Pasquotank and Perquimans Counties, we are collecting $270,000 a year that goes to helping support the local communities.”
Wayne Harris, Director, Pasquotank County Economic Development Commission
The call was co-hosted by the Elizabeth City Area Chamber of Commerce and Chambers for Innovation and Clean Energy. For more information, please contact Jennifer Behr at firstname.lastname@example.org.
