DETROIT, June 25 (UPI) -- Sources close to General Electric Corp. said the company planned to open a clean energy research center in Detroit that would create 1,200 jobs.

While not specifying what it would be, a company spokesman said GE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Immelt would include "some news" in a speech scheduled for the Detroit Economic Club Friday, the Detroit Free Press reported Thursday.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd declined to comment Wednesday.

A source, however, said GE would create the research and development center in Wayne County, Mich., which includes Detroit.
