Site selection is one of the most critical decisions your business can make, and Entergy’s new, high-powered tool is up to the task. Our Site Selection Center, Buildings & Sites, is easy and intuitive to navigate. Among thousands of properties across Entergy’s four-state service area, your top matches are quickly accessible using the specific search criteria of your choice.

Ever since Entergy introduced its innovative Site Selection Tool in 2008, our new generation of super-charged search has been in the making. We asked users of our Site Selection Center to give us their wish lists of what they wanted the system to do. Here are just a few of the dynamic that came true:

Additionally, you will like the search speed and comprehensive quality of the information you find using the new Site Selection Center. Some of the enhancements include:

Built-In Accuracy

Our new Site Selection Center is based on Esri- demographic and business data. You can view data by drive-time, radius, polygon, county, city, town, region and state.

Entergy built the new site selection tool for communities to use. Property owners and real estate agents can enter data, making the site more of a comprehensive, centralized data base.

The new site selection program helps community and real estate partners enter data accurately and keep it up to date. Property Data Quality Verification ensures the accuracy of property information at the point of input, and a Quality Score measures the listing completeness.

Get to Know Your Valuable Resources

The best way to get acquainted with what will most likely become your go-to tool is to visit Buildings & Sites right now – use your phone, tablet or computer. You may want to start with our tips and tools page. Or maybe you’d prefer to strike out on your own and explore the possibilities: Pick some very specific searches, create a map with layers and export a report.

Entergy is also taking our new tool on a roadshow throughout the Entergy region in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. This will give community partners and real estate managers an opportunity to learn about how to input sites and businesses to learn more about how to use and benefit from the new system. If you want more information or to be included on the communications about the roadshow, please contact me.

If you find Entergy’s Buildings & Sites helpful at the start of your journey, be sure to take advantage of all the resources and experience our Economic Development team can give you from the moment you begin planning a relocation or expansion all the way through to powering your new site.

When we say the new Site Selection Center is open for your business, we really mean it. Entergy is here to support your business success.
