South Carolina Power Team

Site Identification

South Carolina

The Need

The South Carolina Power Team is the economic development alliance of the state-owned Santee Cooper and the 20 other electric cooperatives around the state.  Due to recent industrial manufacturing announcements in their territories, SC Power needed to identify and develop future industrial sites. GLS was brought in during 2015 in order to identify new, large sites for industrial manufacturing.

The Solution 

GLS initially conducted a GIS screening to identify the best locations within the state for certain manufacturing operations.  This process resulted in 78 unique sites identified.  Further screenings at the community and parcel level led to one mega-site and three large sites.  The SC Power Team is currently coordinating with the local economic development agencies on securing sites and moving forward with technical due diligence on each site.
