Duke Energy Site Readiness Program

The Duke Energy Site Readiness Program began in 2005 in North and South Carolina and Duke Energy Florida implemented the program in November 2012 following the Duke Energy/Progress Energy merger.

The Site Readiness Program is intended to identify, assess, improve and increase awareness of industrial sites in Duke Energy service territory, as well as to advance the state of readiness of these sites. These studies are conducted by nationally recognized site selection consultants who evaluate the sites and provide a final report on recommendations for the properties. To date, 34 properties have been evaluated in Florida.

Duke Energy has evaluated three properties in Volusia County.  The first site was evaluated in Deltona in 2015.  The 256-acre site, later named the Portland Industrial Park recently attracted a 1.4 million square foot, Amazon.com distribution center.  In 2018, 330 acres owned by Duke Energy in DeBary were evaluated by Global Location Strategies.  Just a few weeks ago, Site Selection Group completed an evaluation of the 472 Properties, 640 acres just west of the I-4 and SR 472 interchange. The 472 Properties are very well positioned for industrial development in the coming years. Duke Energy is proud to work with Team Volusia EDC to recruit jobs and capital investment to Volusia County.
