Smart Sites are a slam-dunk choice for companies that are ready to grow now. The Smart Site (or S 2 ) designation guarantees that a site has met stringent requirements and is "shovel-ready" for immediate development. Each Smart Site has municipal electric service, water and sewer access within 500 feet, and is within five miles of an Interstate or Interstate-quality highway. Potential sites undergo an extensive review process by engineers and other experts, and S 2 sites are periodically recertified to ensure accurate, reliable data. Faster construction, fewer uncertainties and less risk for companies and site selectors alike — that's the genius of the Smart Sites program. But that's only part of the story. You see, Smart Sites are located in some of the best places in America to live and do business. We're ElectriCities, representing more than 70 North Carolina Public Power communities, and we created the Smart Sites qualification program to assist our members in developing ready-to-build sites. We call them Smart Sites. You'll call them a no-brainer.
