There's a lot of buzz lately about the possibility of Tesla moving some of operations to Northern Nevada, and on Tuesday, a viewer has a question about that.
Neva Baylor wrote in to ask since Nevada was chosen as one of the states Tesla is considering for their new battery making factory, are we doing anything to make this an attractive opportunity for them?
Joe checked with Stan Thomas over at EDAWN, the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada.
It is their mission to recruit new businesses to the area.
Unfortunately, Thomas cannot say what they are doing to entice Tesla to move that battery plant here.
EDAWN has signed an NDA. That stands for non-disclosure agreement. It means that the public is not allowed to know any of the steps being taken to convince Tesla officials to make the move here. Tesla wanted it that way, and EDAWN had no choice but to go ahead and sign that agreement in order to keep us in the running.
Some reports have stated that we are the front runner to land the Tesla plant, which will employ about 6,500 workers when its built.
