The Ford Power Plant


Ford Motor Company has a factory in St. Paul. The factory produces Ford Ranger trucks. Ford built this power plant to supply power to the factory. The plant is one of only two vehicle plants in the world powered exclusively by non-carbon energy. The Ford factory gets its power from its own hydroelectric station below the plant on the Mississippi River, saving considerable electricity costs. It's not sexy, but there it is!
