ABQ possible site of new battery factory

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – New Mexico may be in a bidding war with Nevada over Tesla’s new battery factory.

The company has announced it will build the $2 billion factory, and they’ve come to Albuquerque to take a look at what the city has to offer.

So far the company is not saying which way they’re leaning.

According to the Reno-Gazette Journal, Tesla Motors is also exploring sites in northern Nevada.

The plant would employ 2,000 workers.

A decision from the company is expected soon.
