An idle 320-acre Ford Motor Co. plant, which during its 52 years of operation assembled 6.6 million Lincoln Continentals, Ford Thunderbirds and other vehicles before halting operations two years ago, is getting reincarnated as a renewable energy equipment manufacturing park. In a symbolic win for those hoping the U.S. can replace some of its thousands of lost automotive jobs with green ones, three greentech companies on Thursday announced a plan to retrofit a Ford assembly plant in Michigan (the state with the highest unemployment rate in the country) to manufacture equipment for wind and solar projects, and to set up a ...

Despite the size of the property -- 4.7 million square feet shuttered more than a year ago -- the impact of such a large absorption in the market may barely be noticed. The largest impact would probably be in the collective Southeast Michigan psyche, said Jon Savoy, president of Lee & Associates of Michigan. "It would be wonderful for our image," Savoy said. "If you were with Warner Bros., and moved from ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
