Once completed in 2020, the factory is set to become one of the biggest buildings in the world, with a final size of 10 million square feet


Tesla’s ‘Gigafactory’ is located on Electric Avenue in Sparks, Nevada.

The factory’s name stems from ‘giga,’ a unit of measurement that represents billions.

One gigawatt hour is the equivalent of generating one billion watts for one hour — one million times that of one kilowatt hour.

Once completed in 2020, the factory is set to become one of the biggest buildings in the world, with a final size of 10 million square feet

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

That’s the equivalent to the entire world’s production in 2014.

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

Once completed in 2020, the factory is set to become one of the biggest 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 operational space across several floors. 

‘We are still less than 30 percent done, and once complete, we expect the Gigafactory to be the biggest building in the world,’ Tesla said.
