Economic Development

Jones-Onslow is committed to working with local and state officials to encourage economic growth in North Carolina and especially in our communities. Our comprehensive economic development program is a combination of networking, special commercial and industrial rates and special low-interest loans. Our expansion and relocation team, together with our professional engineers and support staff, can custom design an energy management program for incoming organizations. We can also provide new industry with other important data to help them make the best choices for expansion and location.

We provide a wide array of support for businesses seeking to start, expand or relocate to the Tar Heel State. These include energy audit services, lighting audit services, flexibility in rate design, power quality services, and loan and grant assistance.

Jones-Onslow belongs to several Economic Development organizations and Committees of 100. We work to assist state and local economic development officials in any way possible.
