Starfire Energy Proposal



SITE SELECTION While we recognize an exhaustive multi-state site selection process may not be necessary for this requirement, we chose to highlight C&W’s capabilities should Starfire request assistance upon commencing the project. C&W’s site selection process incorporates hundreds of data points into market screening and score-carding. Per our understanding, business incentives & land / real estate viability considerations are of utmost importance to Starfire. We’ve outlined this criteria along with some additional key site selection categories here (note this list is not exhaustive and can be customized to Starfire’s specific drivers).
