About

The Tesla Gigafactory 1 is a lithium-ion battery factory under construction, and in production, primarily for Tesla Motors at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center in Storey County, Nevada, US. The factory became operational in the first quarter of 2016. Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval estimated that Nevada would enjoy $100 billion in economic benefit over two decades from the construction of this factory. It will be the world's second-largest building by usable space, smaller than only the Boeing Everett Factory, and the world's largest building by physical area.
