Businesses considering expanding or relocating to Indiana or southeastern Illinois can get a boost from Hoosier Energy Economic Development, which is one of the Midwest’s leading economic development utility organizations to foster growth.

The Hoosier Energy economic development team, which works in collaboration with member cooperatives and state and regional organizations, is regarded as a one-stop shop for all of a company’s expansion or relocation needs.

Located within a day’s drive of more than 70 percent of the nation’s population, the Hoosier Energy service territory offers a broad portfolio of shovel-ready sites and available buildings with Interstate and rail access, all of which can be easily searched at

The team at Hoosier Energy, an electricity generation and transmission cooperative, also facilitates access to local grants and incentive programs, provides rate estimates and rate information, offers discounted industrial rates, promotes energy efficiency programs and provides access to renewable electricity.

Indiana, a right-to-work state, has a very pro-growth business climate, with no inventory or inheritance taxes, and continued corporate and individual tax cuts. As the crossroads of America, the state has committed $1.2 billion a year through 2024 for transportation infrastructure projects.

Chief Executive magazine’s 2017 rankings of the Best States for Business had Indiana at No. 1 in the Midwest and No. 5 nationally. In 2016, CNBC also ranked Indiana No. 1 for Cost of Doing Business, and Forbes had the Hoosier State at No. 4 for Regulatory Environment.

Hoosier Energy provides low cost, high quality wholesale electric power to its owners—18 distribution cooperatives throughout central and southern Indiana and southeastern Illinois. Electric energy is generated from a highly efficient fleet of natural gas, coal and renewable fuel generating stations, meeting the demands of industrial, commercial, agricultural and residential customers over a 59-county region in the heart of the Midwest.
