“Prairie Belt because there are so many people around here this is referred to as The Prairie, part of the Prairie Belt. The Powersite because, you know what, there are only a few megasites left in the U S Southeast that are not taken for or are not spoken for. And out of all of them, none of them have the electrical power that we can deliver,” says Ron Maloney, Clay¬†County LINK coordinator.
