Been following Tesla’s announcement that it plans on building a 10 million-square-foot factory to make electric car batteries? Yes, that’s 10 million square feet. Talk about thinking really big. This great piece at Wired.com explores the implications a factory of this size could have on the electric vehicle, solar (Tesla owner Elon Musk is also chairman of SolarCity, another Wall Street darling) and even Apple, which apparently has an interest in what Musk is up to with his gigafactory.
Oh, by the way… Musk increased his net worth by $1 billion this past Tuesday because of how well shares of Tesla and SolarCity are doing right now. Just another day at the office?
