Tesla explores the construction of Gigafactory in Europe -WSJ

Once completed in 2020, the factory will become one of the largest buildings in the world, with a final size of 10 million square feet

The & # 39; Gigafactory & # 39; of Tesla is located on Electric Avenue in Sparks, Nevada.

The name of the factory comes from 'giga', a unit of measure that represents billions.

One gigawatt hour is equivalent to generating one billion watts per hour, one million times more than one kilowatt hour.

Once completed in 2020, the factory will become one of the largest buildings in the world, with a final size of 10 million square feet

Tesla says the factory will produce 35 gigawatt hours of batteries by 2018.

That is the equivalent of global production in 2014.

The city of New York uses around 52 gigawatt hours of energy per year.

Once completed in 2020, the factory will become one of the largest buildings in the world, with a final size of 10 million square feet.

Already, the current structure has a footprint of 1.9 million square feet, which houses 4.9 million square feet of operating space on several floors.

"We are still less than 30 percent done, and once completed, we expect the Gigafactory to be the largest building in the world," said Tesla.
