Where will Tesla's Battery Factory be Built?

Tesla sent out a letter to it's investors for the 2nd quarter, and in that letter it confirmed that it broke ground outside of Reno at a possible Gigafactory location. They stopped short of confirming that that will be the actual location for the Gigafactory though.

Quote:
In June, we broke ground just outside Reno, Nevada on a site that could potentially be the location for the Gigafactory. Consistent with our strategy to identify and break ground on multiple sites, we continue to evaluate other locations in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. The final site for the first Gigafactory will be determined in the next few months, once we have full visibility and agreement on the relevant incentives and processes for enabling the Gigafactory to be fully operational to meet the timing for Model 3.
I don't really get the strategy of breaking ground on multiple sites, it's only going to get built in one location, right?

Do you think that Reno is going to be the actual site of the Gigafactory, or is it going to be one of the dark horses?

well no one said they had to have just one facility. Consider that all te major OEM's have multiple engine factories, I don't see why Tesla cannot do the same for batteries. Or they could be potentially expanding their manufacturing capabilities, currently they have just the one factory...

one major downside is shipping cost for the batteries
