Texas to continue pursuit of Tesla battery factory

 

EMILY SCHMALL, Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) – Gov. Rick Perry's office says it continues to negotiate with Tesla Motors to build an electric car battery factory in Texas, despite Tesla's announcement Thursday that it has broken ground on a Nevada site.

The company has said a final decision on the location of the $5 billion factory will come in the next few months.

Other places in Texas are independently pursuing Tesla.

San Antonio Economic Development Foundation spokeswoman Liz Clark told The Associated Press on Friday her group has been given strict instructions by Tesla "not to say anything."

Dallas County Economic Development Director Rick Loesberg says the county is still hoping a Tesla factory will be built in North Texas. He says the county is interested but doesn't know if Tesla feels the same.
