Duke Energy selects Rutherford County location for Site Readiness Program

RALEIGH, NC – Duke Energy has selected eight North Carolina properties for participation in this year’s Site Readiness Program to prepare them for business and industrial development.

Duke Energy’s award-winning endeavor identifies high-quality industrial sites in its service areas then collaborates with county leaders and local economic development professionals to develop a strategy for providing water, sewer, natural gas and electricity to the parcels.

This 153-acre site located next to Forest City is adjacent to the US 74 Bypass with excellent access to both I-85 and I-26. The site also offers the potential for rail service.
