Tree Hugger, July 13, 2015: Gigafactory to be biggest building on Earth? Tesla buys additional 1,200 acres, could make it twice as big as original plans
Take a look at the photos in this article.
""More batteries needed for home and utility storage?
"Tesla's Gigafactory, which is currently under construction in Nevada, is truly deserving of its giga prefix. The goal is to make as much battery pack capacity in that single factory in 2020 (50 gigawatt-hour, enough for 500,000 EVs per year) as the whole world was making last year. The original plan called for a 10 million square-foot building, but made in a modular way so that once the first part is done, it can be operated as a pilot plant while the rest is finished and ramps up."
At least one company is looking to the future. Impressive.
