Georgia Offers Rivian Big Incentive Deal

Despite some disagreement on the state's direct-to-consumer stance, several Georgian counties have offered EV startup Rivian a $1.5B incentive package. The company's new manufacturing plant in Stanton Sprints, GA, will employ 7,500 at an average salary of $56K plus benefits through 2047. 

That’s a pretty good deal. The incentive package is the largest in the state's history. State and county contributions include 

  • Massive tax breaks 
  • Land acquisition and development funds 
  • Interstate, highway, rail line expansions 
  • Other local incentives
