Closed Ford Plant To Be Transformed Into A Renewable Energy Park

September 14th, 2009 · No Comments

Recession has undeniably dealt a devastating economic blow to almost every town and city in America. And nowhere is the economic difficulty more deeply felt than in auto-manufacturing towns in the north. One of these towns is  Wixom, in Michigan, where a Ford plant used to employ 3,000 people making Lincolns and Continentals – until it was forced to shut down operations in 2005.

The Daily Green reports that a group of high-profile green companies are taking over the closed-down Ford facilities in Wixom to turn it into a renewable energy park. Clairvoyant Energy and Xtreme Power, along with a third operator Oerlikon Solar USA,  are reported to be investing $725 million on the project aimed at transforming the plant’s sprawling 320 acres property into a clean energy park capable of generating up to 10,000 megawatts of electricity.
