Great River Energy launches redesigned economic development website

Site selectors, entrepreneurs and business owners will find a comprehensive suite of user-friendly tools and information on the site.

Great River Energy and its member-owner cooperatives launched a revamped website that highlights their economic development efforts in Minnesota. Site selectors, entrepreneurs and business owners will find a comprehensive suite of user-friendly tools and information on the site.

The new economic development portal is a comprehensive repository featuring data from electric cooperatives, in-depth information on industry sectors, resources for businesses looking to relocate and more.

The site was rebranded with an updated look and feel. It features an interactive map of the 28 cooperatives that own and receive wholesale electricity from Great River Energy. Users can click on portions of the map to bring up individual co-op profiles with key data points.

The portal also features a wealth of information and resources tailored to four key industry sectors: data centers, agricultural/forest products, advanced manufacturing and mining.

Great River Energy is a leader in data center site selection services and was the first in Minnesota to develop a site assessment program specifically for data center development. The website will soon feature cutting edge virtual reality site selection tours of Great River Energy’s certified data center sites.

“We are very excited to launch our new website and virtual site selection tour. As the role of media keeps evolving, Great River Energy and our members rely on cutting-edge technology to successfully position our economic development efforts,” said Tom Lambrecht, Great River Energy’s economic development services manager.
