CARSON CITY, Nev. — Gov. Brian Sandoval will be joined by officials from Tesla Thursday afternoon for a “major economic development announcement,” the governor said Wednesday.

All signs point to Tesla Motors choosing the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center as the site for a massive, $5 billion factory that will pump out batteries for a new generation of electric cars.

The story was first reported by CNBC but then later confirmed by The Associated Press.

Carson City Mayor Robert Crowell told the Nevada Appeal he would be at Gov. Brian Sandoval’s press conference today.

“This is apparently true,” Crowell said about Tesla coming to Northern Nevada. He said it’s, “the biggest thing that’s hit this state in the last century.”

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to the AP because no official announcement had been made, said work would soon resume at an industrial park.

Four other states — California, Texas, Arizona and New Mexico — have been vying for the project and the estimated 6,500 jobs it brings.

The one potential road-block is a tax incentive package for the Palo Alto, Calif., based company.

Asked whether he was calling a special session of the Legislature to implement a package of tax breaks for Tesla, Sandoval said he was talking with legislative leadership. Sources said the governor will call a special session next week.
