Further up stream the paper mill did not have the water flow that Lock and dam #1 had.

Fords Hydro made enough electricity to power the entire Ford plant and supply power to lock and dam #1, plus sell excess electricity to Excel energy. That hydro had four generators in it that spun unless there was a drought upstream. I think there efficiency went down in the spring when the water downstream was almost as high as the dam.

I always thought that woulda been a good place for Ford to build an electric or hybrid vehicle, they coulda advertised green from start to finish....

Certainly many factors to consider, beyond my little sales logo deal.

I don't understand selling off an energy producer, energy will always be a good commodity. Ups and downs, but if you own one, it will be a best option to make some bucks.

It is funny tho, how corporate America goes in cycles, new managers have to come up with ideas to justify them having a new job, so the same old ideas get warmed over every 20 years. Got to focus on the core; got to diversify, blah blah.

Some of their BS reasons for shutting it down was it only had 40 foot bays. Chicago has 40 foot bays Louisville has 40 foot bays. Then there was twin Cities is too far from Dearborn. Kansas city is a little farther and Louisville is just as far. That is just two of the reasons that I can remember, may have been more. Twin Cities was one of Fords highest quality plants in North America. And supplied all its own electricity to run it. The paint building that was torn down would cost over a Billion dollars to replace.

Running production 24 hours a day I feel played a part in shutting down plants.
