Florida First Sites

About the Florida First Sites Program

Powered by Gulf Power

Florida First Sites is the first regional site certification program in the State of Florida to develop project-ready industrial sites. Each site undergoes a rigorous screening process developed by McCallum Sweeney Consulting, offering an objective, third party analysis to ensure the sites are ready for development.

The program was launched by Gulf Power Company, an investor-owned utility company spanning Northwest Florida. Florida First Sites allows the region to be a competitive player in your site selection decisions. This program ensures that pre-work has been complete, taking the majority of the risk out of the site selection process.

Each certified site or park has met the following qualifications:
