The Placement Is Right
The decision to build the factory in Nevada was not made lightly. The products coming out of the factory will be American made, which is a huge drive right now. Nevada is also a state that is generous with tax breaks, so the factory will cost the company less than if it was built elsewhere. Additionally, the University of Nevada will be working with Tesla and offering battery-related engineering classes. This creates a perfect pipeline of employees for the factory and gives grads an amazing employment opportunity immediately following graduation.
