San Bernardino County’s revenue from economic development is projected to increase by 41 percent this fiscal year, attributed to dozens of renewable energy, mining and other projects coming through the pipeline, officials said Monday.

The Board of Supervisors will hold a special study session today to discuss the county economic development agency’s budget and discuss strategies of attracting new business and tourism to the region.

EDA Administrator Kelly Reenders said the presentation will focus mainly on the services provided by the agency. She said economic development revenue, which is expected to increase from $2.9 million in 2012-13 to $4.1 million this fiscal year, is attributed mainly to the roughly 40 renewable energy projects, 17 mining projects and more than a dozen other projects that are slated to commence in the next year.
