The Top Utilities of the Year
Monday, September 12, 2016
Ask any sales pro: If you know your customer as well as you know your territory, you’re halfway home.
In the case of serving the utility needs of existing, expanding and new companies — as well as serving the communities in which they operate — getting to know customers’ needs and challenges is helping them grow. It can mean making a lot more connections than the electrical kind. And ultimately, it helps those companies feel right at home.
Each year since 1999, Site Selection evaluates the performance of utility economic development teams based on corporate facility project jobs and capex figures from the previous calendar year in the utilities’ service areas. Metrics include both straight totals and per-capita calculations, as well as website tools and data; innovative programs and incentives for business; and the utility’s own job-creating infrastructure and facility investment trends.
Here, in alphabetical order, we present this year’s Top Utilities and Honorable Mentions.
