Tesla to convert Austin plant rooftop to solar power

Tesla reveals unbelievable employment numbers at Giga Texas | Electrek


Imagine Austin’s Tesla factory covered with rooftop solar panels?

It’s what the company intends to do, creating the largest rooftop solar installation in the world.

The company indicated that when the project is finished, it will be 30 megawatts.

The solar milestone would be one of many firsts at the factory, reported the Austin Monitor.

“The first American battery manufacturing at scale is happening here and the first American cathode manufacturing – which is the most expensive part of the battery – is happening at Giga Texas,” said Rohan Patel, Tesla’s senior global director of public policy and business development.
