Tesla is an innovative and relatively new automobile manufacturer whose ultimate mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. Tesla does this with their energy division's solar panels and battery storage solutions in addition to their evolving fleet of highly rated premium electric vehicles.

In January of 2017 Tesla began manufacturing batteries in their Gigafactory in Nevada, and by 2018 this factory will have doubled the battery production for the world. This factory is poised to be the next evolutionary stage in manufacturing, and in history will be viewed with the same level of impact as Henry Ford's interchangeable parts and Toyota's Lean Manufacturing principles. The 4.9 million square foot Gigafactory is necessary for Tesla's mission of accelerating the world's transition to sustainable energy and it is also a product.

During Tesla's earnings call of February 22, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk stated that in addition to working on Model 3 and their Gigafactory in Nevada the company is looking for opportunities to build additional Gigafactories in the future. 

Here are some of the ways that the Gigafactory in Nevada has impacted the State and its economy.

This is an amazing opportunity for SC to embrace and entice Telsa to build one our their Gigafactories in our state.  The state has recently attracted BMW, Amazon, and Boeing through tax incentives, competitive labor, and the states advantageous electricity and other operating costs. We as a group need to encourage the state of South Carolina and Tesla to work together to make this opportunity a reality.
