Tesla announced on Thursday that it has hired 10 new geoteacher positions.
The news comes after the automaker said it is hiring 50 new workers to help improve its ability to operate its manufacturing facilities.
The hires come as Tesla is expanding its geoteaching operations in areas that include the Upper Colorado River Basin, where the Tesla-built Supercharger network is being installed.
Tesla is also building a new geothermal power station in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The announcement of the hires comes amid an investigation into whether Tesla violated the U.S. government’s geotechical emissions standards by installing electric vehicles on public lands.
In June, the Environmental Protection Agency accused Tesla of violating the Clean Air Act and the Endangered Species Act by using electric vehicles in areas of the Upper and Lower Colorado Rivers.
Tesla responded that it is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
