From Site Selection's press release:

Atlanta, September 3, 2019: Top Utilities in Economic Development

Featured in the September issue are Site Selection's annual rankings of Top U.S. Utilities in Economic Development (see list below), based on analysis of corporate end-user project activity in 2018 in those utilities’ territories (from Conway Projects Database and submitted materials). In addition to examining facility investment, project totals and calculating those projects’ jobs and capital investment numbers on a cumulative and per-capita basis, we also looked at website tools and data; innovative programs and incentives for business, including energy efficiency and renewable energy programs; and the utility’s own job-creating infrastructure and facility investment trends.

“The elite Top 20 we named this year earned the honor amid a field of around 3,300 electric utilities across the country, including around 900 cooperatives,” says Managing Editor Adam Bruns of the rankings.
