Grow in Alexander County

Join several existing industries (Paragon Films, Craftmaster Furniture, Borealis Compounds) in this Alexander County rail-served industrial park. The available 92.7 acres include the initial grading of a 20-acre site completed in 2023 with a pad designed for a 50,000 to 150,000 square foot rail-served building. Utilities are on or adjacent to the site with planned extensions of sewer by 2026 and a new electric substation for the park in progress. Easy access to I-40 and I-77 and Charlotte and Greensboro metro areas make the park perfect for new or expanding industries.

Partner With Your Local Co-op

Together with our consumer-members, North Carolina’s 26 electric cooperatives are creating a brighter future for North Carolina’s rural people and communities. Our innovation and actions are guided by our local roots and focus on delivering value to cooperative members and communities. In this decade and beyond, we will continue our commitment to providing reliable electricity at the lowest possible cost while also advancing the pursuit of responsible sustainability goals.

Concern for community is a hallmark of the cooperative difference, and we continue to invest in education grants and programs, zero-interest economic development loans, the deployment of rural broadband and other efforts aimed at improving the daily lives of our members and strengthening our communities.
