Tesla Motors is getting closer to paring down the list of states it's considering for a mega battery factory.  There's a local bid to get that factory built here.

It's admittedly a longshot, but Sacramento County officials are saying Mather Airport business park on Highway 50 in Rancho Cordova is a possible location for Tesla Motors' proposed battery factory.

The Sacramento Bee reports Tesla is considering Mather among other California sites for the plant, but notes the company is leaning toward building in another state.

Actually, Tesla reportedly plans to narrow the field to two states, and the Phoenix Business Journal says the company will even start dual construction sites to amplify a bidding war.
