Electric Cities of Georgia provides available site listings, in cooperation with the Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development Sites program.
Georgia EMC’s extensive databases include details about buildings, industrial/commercial sites, parks and greenfield sites.
Southern Company’s largest subsidiary is Georgia Power. Search its Select Georgia database of available sites by site, county, community, industrial buildings, office buildings, GRAD properties and more.
Georgia established the Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development Sites program, preparing available, shovel-ready sites for rapid industrial development with advance due diligence.
To qualify for GRAD status, local community or economic development organizations submit available sites to Allies. A third party reviews the submission, assessing minimum acreage (50), ownership security, zoning designation, road and rail accessibility, utilities service, and wetlands and stream delineation.
Previously conducted surveys for these sites include topographical, geotechnical and environmental (Phase I) data, plus investigations for cultural resources and endangered species.
