A political action group in Arizona is gearing up to enter a citizen’s initiative in the state’s 2012 elections, which would allow individuals using solar power to trade environmental credits in exchange for discounts on income tax, while making solar more affordable.

The “Go Solar in Arizona” Economic Development Initiative, initiated by the Arizona Solar Power Society, has been filed before the office of the Arizona Secretary of State for inclusion on the Arizona 2012 ballot, to offer voters a chance to vote yes in favor of the initiative.
