How Nevada won a billion-dollar Tesla plant, and how Tesla scored a great deal - The Washington Post
On paper, the states competing for Tesla’s business had good reason to put together an attractive package: Some academics estimated the Gigafactory would bring up to $100 billion in economic activity to whichever state won the project. Such a massive building project with so much economic potential comes around perhaps once a decade, especially for rural Western areas hit hard by the recession. So when the company approached potential hosts, teams of economic development officials from several Western states started putting together detailed plans of incentives and credits aimed at luring the company’s business. The five major players — Nevada, California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas — kept the details of those plans secret, as did Tesla.
