Testa Motors Gigafactory in Nevada Opens Ahead of Schedule, Brings in Thousands of Jobs
Tesla Motors, an automaker and energy storage company, has seen a lot despite the year barely starting. With so much on their plate including the tests they must pass, Elon Musk, the current CEO of the company, must steel themselves for a harsh year ahead of them.
The demands of their company and its performance are already getting higher and harder to cope with, and yet Tesla Motors decides to push forward with renewed ambition. They say that no man is an island, and such cannot be any truer for the situation Tesla Motors has plodded itself into. They're going to need all the help they can get, and they just might be able to get that help by opening many windows of opportunities.
Newssummedup.com states that soon they will be releasing all of these opportunities with one sole factory - a Gigafactory in Nevada. It's a factory that will begin battery production for the company, which means that scientifically and economically this will have a lot of bonuses to come with it.
Despite the facility being less than 30 percent complete, it is still currently functioning by making lithium-ion cells. However, due to the recent election, the company faces scrutiny as President Donald Trump had stated in his campaign that he would be particularly aggressive with companies that he accuses of moving jobs abroad to countries such as Mexico.
According to The Huffington Post, bringing cell production to the U.S. will allow them to create thousands of American jobs. Even though Elon Musk had joined Mr. Trump's economic advisory team, he did not tip his hat towards him since Donald Trump had been taking credit last month for 5,000 jobs from Sprint Corp.
Musk still moves forward, however, making many mergers with other companies to help him in his endeavors, such as SolarCity. He continues to strive forward in his dream of supplying the world with sustainable energy, and the Gigafactory will definitely play a big hand in helping that dream come true in the coming years of 2017 and onward.
