Tesla Gigafactory in Tight Spot
March 11, 2021—Tesla Gigafactory Berlin is currently installing production equipment, though it hasn't received approval to start production.
The automaker has faced criticism from environmentalists regarding water supply concerns at the facility, and deforestation.
To keep construction going, Tesla will move forward with individual permits, but Electrek reports that comes with its own challenges, and they would still need final approval. The automaker is hoping to start production in July of this year.
