San Antonio had to claw its way into contention for Tesla Motors' planned gigafactory, a dream project that would put 6,500 people to work in a $5 billion plant that produces lithium-ion batteries.
By several accounts, local officials overcame the city's also-ran status in the early stages of Tesla's site selection. They finally coaxed the electric-car maker into taking a serious look at San Antonio for the project, which the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company announced in late February.

That's because CPS Energy brings a lot to the table as a would-be partner for Tesla and because Mayor Julián Castro is reportedly working as many angles to win the project as he and his staff can think of.
