Site Identification


LG+E and KU Energy

The Need

GLS was approached by LG&E and KU Energy to use its site identification process to give communities in its territory a competitive edge when vying for business investment. The company recognized that its inventory of investment-ready sites was dwindling due to its ongoing successes that had taken much of its site inventory.

The Solution 

Electricity territory within 79 counties was analyzed using GLS’s proprietary heat mapping technology. Regions were prioritized based on this screening, and 84 individual sites were identified that met the requirements of heavy industrial development. Through the site identification process, identified sites underwent a series of reverse site selection screenings to determine which had the characteristics to be most competitive for future industrial projects. At the conclusion of this project, five sites were prioritized for near-term acquisition and development, and six additional sites were identified for future development consideration.
