Massive Tesla Gigafactory To Have Massive Impact On Nevada

Expected to be one of the world’s largest industrial facilities, the Tesla gigafactory is not just going to produce home solar storage and electric-car batteries. The massive facility is projected to provide Nevada with annual statewide economic benefits of $5.4 billion in jobs, tax revenues and overall spending over the next two decades.

It’s been one year since the 5.5-million-square-foot facility broke ground at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, so let’s take a look at its anticipated impact. (For another perspective on how huge the Tesla gigafactory really is, check out this video taken by a remote controlled “drone.”)
