Cleco Power announced this week it was launching a new economic development website that would serve as a digital platform for businesses and industry looking to expand or relocate to Louisiana.

The website, ClecoDev.com, highlights aspects of the state’s economy like its diverse and engaged workforce, competitive tax incentives and robust transportation and logistics infrastructure. Additionally, the site features the company’s clean energy plan, which can help industries achieve their sustainability goals.

“ClecoDev.com is a product of our refocused strategic economic development efforts to revitalize our communities and bring new industry to Louisiana by showcasing all our great state has to offer,” Richard Cornelison, Cleco Power director of marketing and economic development, said. “The website is a robust resource for site selectors, companies and other community and state partners, connecting them to interactive maps of development-ready sites, testimonials from major employers in Cleco’s service territory, information on Louisiana’s ample natural resources, and much more.”

Cleco Power was recently recognized by Business Facilities magazine for its economic development strategy. In June, the publication awarded Cleco Power its Economic Development Organization Award to recognize its innovative program to improve the communities it serves.

“Cleco Power recognizes the importance of being able to offer our customers a clean energy future, and we’ve never been better poised to meet the growing demands of business and industry,” Cornelison said. “We’re proud to use ClecoDev.com to present the best parts of Cleco’s service territory to stakeholders and showcase our commitment to helping them thrive in Louisiana.”
