The Gigafactory will celebrate its official opening on Friday, July 29.

The Tesla Gigafactory will celebrate its Grand Opening on July 29. Tesla Motors has sent out invitations to customers who won tickets to attend the event.

The Tesla battery plant is already making batteries, but has not yet reached its full capacity. Tesla started to build the Gigafactory in June 2014 outside Sparks, Nevada. By 2020, the Gigafactory will reach full capacity and produce more lithium ion batteries annually than were produced worldwide in 2013. According to a recent statement of Elon Musk, the Gigafactory will have the largest footprint of any building of any kind.

The Gigafactory is essential for the Tesla Model 3 rollout in 2017. 

The name Gigafactory comes from the factory’s planned annual battery production capacity of 35 gigawatt-hours (GWh). “Giga” is a unit of measurement that represents “billions”. One GWh is the equivalent of generating (or consuming) one billion watts for one hour—one million times that of one kWh.
