Tesla In Talks to Buy Lithium From Warren Buffett’s Geothermal Wells in California

Recommended Posts

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Energy is looking to potentially extract large amounts of lithium from its Salton Sea geothermal plants and Tesla is reportedly in talks to be a customer. Berkshire has denied that any agreement is in place but left open the possibility that talks could be underway. 

Tesla tried and failed to buy a lithium startup in the Salton Sea for $325 million back in 2014 because they couldn’t agree on a price. Maybe this time could be different with  Tesla being in a completely different position than it was back in 2014 and the deep pockets of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway also being involved.

@Brian W oh wow - this could be huge for Tesla. We'll see if the deals take place and they come to an agreement. With Giga China turning on very soon - production is going to pick up quite a bit.
