The companies planning to build a parts plant for BMW cars have selected a site in Moses Lake because of the availability of hydroelectric power. The decision by SGL Group and BMW AG was announced Tuesday.

The factory’s $100 million initial investment will create 80 jobs.

The carbon fiber parts made at the plant will be used in BMW’s Megacity electric vehicle, which will be available sometime before 2015.
