Tesla Motors has been searching for a place to call its gigafactory home, and it looks the American electric car manufacturer might have made its final decision. A "contributor" to Forbes and the Reno Gazette-Journal are reporting that Tesla has acquired a evacuation and surface air permit in Reno, NV. But there hasn't been official word from Tesla.

From RGJ:
The work is being done at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center in Storey County, just east of the Reno-Sparks area. The Reno Gazette-Journal was the first to report in June that Tesla was likely the company working on the land at the industrial center.
Thursday, The Daily quoted the Mayor Jonathan Rothschild's plead to Tesla “Attached is a City of Tucson permit, ready for your signature."

If Rothschild's memo and Tony Ford's video doesn't work then I don't know what will.
