Table of Contents

In this episode, Dane talks with Richard Cornelison, Director of Regional Growth and Economic Development for Cleco. Cleco is a regional utility company in Louisana. Richard is the right guy for the job. He's been in utility economic development for nearly 27 years.

Utilities are often the primary driver of economic development in many communities. They are often the chief funder but can also bring several technical resources, including GIS, data, etc.

But in 2022, their role is evolving.

What communities and state departments of commerce need is not just help to answer RFPs.

In this episode, Richard, brings his years of utility ED experience to bear and describes the future.

(Sorry for the audio quality in this episode. We had some technical issues on my side. I accidentally recorded my audio from my Airpods instead of my mic.)
