ElectriCities is a not-for-profit government service organization representing cities, towns, and universities that own electric distribution systems. More than 70 NC cities serve 500,000 customers, with 1 million customers served in NC, SC, and VA. ElectriCities provides economic development, customer service/safety training, emergency/technical assistance, communications, government affairs, and legal services.

One of ElectriCities’ roles is to represent member communities to expanding and relocating companies. We maintain comprehensive databases for all public power municipalities in North Carolina.

Prospects can order detailed reports on dozens of sites, from mountains to coast. Within 48 hours of a request, ElectriCities will send profiles of locations that precisely match the company’s specifications.

It’s no coincidence that some of the state’s most dynamic growth has occurred in our communities. Any power-intensive industry is going to find significant advantages here.

ElectriCities remains a partner through the entire process, facilitating site visits and contact with local, county and state officials.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
 
Founded in 1975 in Princeton, N.J., The Boyd Co. is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Add a few years to 40 and that's how long I have been a reader of Site Selection — a best-in-class publication by far. "
