There’s a reason industry thrives in Kentucky. The cost of doing business is the third lowest in the nation. Companies benefit from the state’s low labor and electricity costs as well as its workforce training and recruitment programs.

Kentucky Lake Economic Development partners with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, the Tennessee Valley Authority and local government entities to provide options for incentives on new or expanding projects, workforce training and site location.
