Now Available Everywhere
Today, PowerMap, a mobile application from Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, is now available across all operating systems and platforms including Apple; Android and Desktop.
The first of its kind, PowerMap puts the power of locational knowledge in your hand with detailed cooperative service territory maps for all of our 87 counties served by Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. Targeted for Economic Development professionals, the app uses your mobile device’s GPS capabilities to determine if you are in one of the 16 cooperatives’ service territories. Whether using the locational or search features, the app will reflect the appropriate cooperative’s logo for the territory being researched regardless whether you have connection to the internet or not. If the location is outside of the cooperatives’ service territory (i.e. LG&E, Kentucky Utilities or municipal provider territory) the logo of the Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives is reflected. PowerMap leverages over 63,000 site selection data points from StateBook International (the premier data site for economic development site selectors), to access geo-specific data such as: availability of skills; detailed workforce data; available sites and buildings; quality of life attributes; along with narratives and facts about the community and region that helps to tell the story of the communities served by Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives.
The app was created by our friends at Interapt which has been designated a “Google-At-Work” company. They are based in Louisville and are one of Kentucky’s leading technology companies that was most recently named a “2015 Cool Vendor” by Gartner for their cutting edge applications across multiple platforms.
PowerMap is part of a suite of economic development efforts by Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives that includes a new economic development website as well as StateBook economic development websites for our cooperatives and counties served.
