The Reno Gazette-Journal has an interesting story on how Tesla’s “ripple effect” will impact Reno and Sparks, Nevada. In fact, it is already being felt. See Tesla’s ripple effect could touch everyone in Reno
from the RGJ piece:
Nearly every industry in the area will grow and add employees as a result of this huge influx of Tesla employees and Tesla capital investment, as well as the significant number of construction jobs created in the first few years at Tesla and in support of the growth in the housing industry…These indirect jobs range from more retail and service industry jobs to professional jobs, attorneys and medical, as well as more government jobs like teachers and public safety. In addition to these indirect jobs, there will be many more companies that come to the region, not associated with Tesla, as a direct result of the national attention and credibility we are getting because Tesla chose Northern Nevada.
