Duke Energy provides funding for site development in Indiana
“Economic development plays a vital role in keeping our communities strong and healthy,” Duke Energy Indiana Director of Economic Development Erin Schneider said. “We’re proud to help our partners in Bloomington find ways to attract and keep jobs in the local area.”
The Duke Energy Site Readiness Program is an integral part of the company’s economic development model, allowing Duke Energy to partner with consultants and find sites with high development potential, then determine the best ways to improve those sites. In doing so, Duke Energy helps communities within its service territory, allowing them to attract new companies to the area and generate new jobs on a local level.
The Bloomington site is a 53-acre parcel near Interstate 69 and the Monroe County airport. Made in partnership with McCallum Sweeney Consulting, Duke Energy’s recommendations for the site include the development of water, sewer and electric service infrastructure for the site as well as marketing suggestions for the site when its development is complete.
