For the 12th consecutive year, Duke Energy has been named to Site Selection magazine’s annual list of “Top Utilities in Economic Development.”
In the magazine’s September edition, it credits Duke Energy’s economic development team and its successful collaboration with state and local partners for delivering more than $3.5 billion in capital investments and more than 12,000 new jobs in 2015. Duke Energy has been featured on the list every year since 2005.
“Economic development is a team sport and we are a key position player – we work with many allies in different capacities throughout the economic development process to achieve success,” said Stu Heishman, Duke Energy’s vice president of economic development. “We will continue to get these results by providing dependable, affordable energy to the industries, businesses and residential customers we serve.”
