    I'd like more sources. So far it's only this article and one that is almost an exact copy. However, this would be great if true.

    I very much doubt that South Africa will be where #2 is built.

    They'll have a rep there at least. It sounded like the interest was mostly selling Power Packs for utility and commercial application with some consumer powerwall availability. Africa could be a huge market for Solar and batteries but they'd need some real evidence of demand before partners would back a factory.
