The new U.S. battery hub

Moses Lake is emerging as a major silicon hub for a myriad of battery materials companies thanks to a perfect trifecta: access to local government support, critical supplies and – one of our foremost priorities – renewable energy.

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington has highlighted the state, and specifically Moses Lake, as being at the forefront of the clean technology revolution. The groundbreaking of Sila Nanotechnologies’ factory in Moses Lake, for instance, is seen as a vital step in developing next-generation battery technology for electric vehicles. Inslee's support for developing the electric car industry as a means to combat climate change and create industrial jobs has played a role in attracting these companies to the area.

The state government has been actively involved in ensuring that infrastructure developments, like electric transmission utilities and housing construction, keep pace with the economic growth in Moses Lake​.
