Duke Energy Carolinas has chosen 48 acres near Anderson to prepare the property for potential industrial development. It’s a project of Duke’s 2013 Site Readiness Program to help communities served by the utility compete for new companies and jobs. Burriss Nelson, president/CEO of the Anderson Economic Development Corporation, says he is thrilled for his county. “It puts this area on a fast track for marketing,” he said. The Coleman site has direct access to Interstate 85 and is near the Georgia state line. Duke plans to work with professional land-use planners to develop conceptual plans for the property, then make recommendations to Anderson County leaders.
