Hope for the future, from this. Let's hope the project isn't tainted by any corporate greed.
Campaigning? I see a huge Tesla factory in Milpitas that would be great to house this subsection to make the batteries. Northern Cali is where all the big tech companies are and I wouldn't be surprised if Tesla chose this innovative technology state. I see Tesla cars everywhere around here and it's pretty much the norm. If the batteries were made here, they probably would be cheaper for Tesla owners to do less shipping cost. We're probably one of the few states with this situation of having lots of Tesla cars, which is similar to the Bay Area once having the most Prius vehicles and now every state has them (for the most part).
It's always nice to see jobs being created. Especially when it's for cars that are going to help solve the issues with gas.
How can people not want this? Are they trying to stop the future? The amount of jobs bringing Tesla anywhere would be great for the community and then the amount of money saved to. Really seems like it would help more than hurt.
