These solar powered panels are delivered from the company Solar City, says the Verge, which Tesla bought in November 2016. Electrek released a handout, in it, Tesla says its Powerpack batteries are made solely from solar energy, making the factory run efficiently and completely free of carbon emission output. Tesla says they could end up making an over abundance of energy than whats needed.
Water and heating is also said to be accessible and sustainable within the Gigafactory. Literature from Tesla says,“Gigafactory’s closed-loop water supply system uses six different treatment systems to efficiently re-circulate about 1.5 million liters (that’s around 400,000 gallons) of water, representing an 80 percent reduction in fresh water usage compared with standard processes.”
It was confirmed by Tesla last week that new 2170 battery cells will be included in Model 3 battery packs by the 2nd quarter of 2017. By then, the company could have even greater news to share with us. Stay tuned!
