Tesla to Build Giga Battery Factory, Create 6,000+ Jobs, and More reports Reid Wilson at the Washington Post. The factory will produce the scale of lithium batteries needed to produce more electric cars more cheaply. Several southwestern states are competing to get the factory.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 .

This is how YOU can make a difference.
