    In terms of gWhs, what do you expect Tesla's output at Gigafactory 1 to be? Right now they are targeting 35gWh in end of 2018 in cell production.
    Place your bets!

    The site outside Reno is about 2875 acres. GF-1 is 126 acres and has an ultimate capacity of 1 Twh. If they
    use all the land for LB production, they could output 23 Twh annually. World annual energy usage is on the order of 118,000 Twh, and if night time storage needs are 10% of that, then ultimately we need 11,800 Twh of batteries. So 23 Twh is great, but it barely makes a dent. Many other LB makers will need to come online. Its all in my book..
