Telsa is building a massive battery plant…a “gigaplant”…outside of Reno, NV in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. Upon completion, it will be the largest building in the world. It will have a 5.8M square foot footprint. With three interior levels, the entire plant will be nearly 15M square feet of space.
Here is an interesting tidbit for you: The factory will supply all of its energy needs with solar panels on the roof and tapping into the natural geothermal and wind energy in the area. The plant will likely generate enough power to return some to the grid.
