HOLLAND (WKZO) -- Holland's LG Chem of Michigan is finally making batteries for the Chevrolet Volt after two years of inactivity and controversy. The South Korean company became a lightning rod for controversy after being given a 150-million-dollar federal grant from President Obama's stimulus and using it to pay idle workers to watch movies, play cards and volunteer in the community. The company is expecting to send the first shipment of lithium ion batteries to General Motors by early October.
