Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) announced last week that battery production had started at its Nevada Gigafactory, but it didn't mention one exciting detail.
According to an investor handout, the Gigafactory will be powered by a 70-megawatt solar array, which is "~7x larger than the largest rooftop solar system installed today."
Any generated excess power will be stored by Tesla Powerpack batteries for use at other times.
