“Recent local news reports in Buffalo reveal that SolarCity’s “Gigafactory” is nearing competition. The exterior has been looking pretty much complete for quite some time now (see picture above), but there’s still work to be done inside the plant, which is why 950 crew members are currently on site to get it online in about 6 months.

SolarCity Senior Vice President of Operations Steve James says that although the 950 constructions jobs are temporary, the company expects 500 full-time employees will work at the plant by next year. SolarCity has already started hiring for management, engineering, and facilities positions.” – Fred Lambert / via Electrek
