That place is huge
I was setting up temporary communications there a few years back when there was just a few houses
They spoke about the place like it was going to be outrageous. It is.

Yes, it is impressive. I drive by there fairly regularly, and it is a sight to behold.

Drive by there 4 times a week since they started. They did not waste anytime.

it's Texas, we are in "optimal" conditions majority of the time. If they are energy positive a majority of the time and store that in power walls the factory should remain self-sufficient.

Yes, that place is massive. On a side note, how do you keep rain from flooding when it drains off the roof? How do you properly divert that much roof water?

If they really wanted to be "green" they would recycle that water.

Storm water detention ponds. Regulate the cfm that enters the drain system. Initially calculated in acre feet.
