Oklahoma legislative committee gives early approval of tax package for Enel solar plant


If renewable energy company Enel North America meets the terms of a state House approved taxpayer incentives package, it could get up to $180 million in incentives from Oklahoma over a proposed solar panel factor at the Tulsa Port of Inola.

A House joint appropriations committee voted this week to give initial approval to the plan which would require Enel to hire at least 1,400 workers at the manufacturing plant reported The Oklahoman.

Enel North America already operates a handful of wind farms in the state and has a training center and office in Oklahoma City.
