Welcome to the Economic Development Resource Hub!


The Economic Development team at FirstEnergy understands there are many factors that must be considered when deciding on a location for investment. That’s why we have launched our Economic Development resource hub. Here we will share updates on interesting projects our team is working on, as well as information you can use throughout the site selection process.

What to Expect

From shale to data centers to advanced manufacturing, FirstEnergy’s Economic Development team has helped a wide variety of companies navigate economic development projects. Through our resource hub, we will share tips, our experiences and best practices learned along the way.

In addition to the latest on our team’s projects, some of the topics you can expect include:

  • Establishing new electric service
  • Electricity 101
  • Property searches and screening
  • Premier sites – ready for you in our service territory
  • Economic impact studies on projects and regions – these can be custom developed for you as well
  • Job resources
  • State and local economic development agency information

We hope you will continue to visit this resource center for information you can use to be successful as your business grows. 

Your Business can be the Next Success Story
