Economic Development

Today many companies talk about economic development partnerships, but this is not a new philosophy at DEMCO; we've been developing business that way for more than 75 years. We have not lost that focus as we have expanded our services. Today we are still committed to partnerships that ensure economic development, more jobs, and a brighter future.

DEMCO is here to help existing businesses expand and to help attract new business to our local communities. This economic development objective allows DEMCO to help the community with expanding job opportunities, strengthening the local economy, and improving our area's quality of life.

DEMCO continues efforts to reach out to corporate America and seeking to further business and residential developments within its service territory.  DEMCO continues to be committed to helping the seven-parish region reach its economic potential by working to attract these new businesses as well as encouraging existing companies to expand.

For prospective businesses and industries, DEMCO offers a full-time staff of business development, engineering, and operational professionals to provide value-added services to promote economic growth in our service area. Load requirements are analyzed and new facilities, including new substations or transmission lines, are designed and constructed to meet the power needs of companies planning to locate within DEMCO's service area.

If you are planning to develop or expand an existing facility, a new residential subdivision or building a commercial facility, let our economic development staff be your liaison to one of Louisiana's finest electric cooperatives, DEMCO. We also keep a database of available buildings and sites in our service territory. If you need our assistance to find a specific site or for electric service proposals and specific incentives for large commercial and industrial customers contact:
