“Future industrial sites in Edgecombe and Nash counties have made a list of six properties Duke Energy has selected in North Carolina for participation in the company’s 2020 Site Readiness Program.

The purpose of the program is to identify high-potential sites and work with county officials and local economic development professionals to develop a strategy for getting the sites fully ready to market to prospects.

The site in Edgecombe County, which is called the Bulluck Tract South Site, is 76 acres in size and close to the future CSX intermodal facility.

The site also is minutes from Interstate 95 and an hour east of both the Research Triangle Park and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

The site also is within a two-hour drive of the ports in Norfolk, Va., and Wilmington. The site can be used for industrial manufacturing and distribution.”
