U.S. Gov't Seeks Public Comment on LG Chem Battery Plant
HOLLAND, Mich. - The federal government is asking for public comment on a proposal to build a $303 million electric car battery plant in Holland.
The 800,000-square-foot facility would make lithium ion batteries to be used in new electric cars, such as the Chevy Volt. It likely would be built on 80 acres of vacant land located northeast of South Waverly Road and East 48th Street.
The vacant land is "owned by a land holding company controlled by Prince Broekhuizen. She is the widow of local industrialist Edgar Prince and mother of Betsy DeVos, Michigan's former Republican chairwoman and Erik Prince, founder of the Blackwater USA security firm," according to The Grand Rapids Press.
