Tesla’s Gigafactory in Germany won permission from local administrators on Friday, but the firm still has to fulfill several regulations before the factory can commence generation of vehicles, Reuters reported, including interests about the factory’s water use.
Construction on the plant, which is nearly finished, was postponed many times by objections from environmental organizations in the neighborhood who protested the plant’s water use and conceivable upheaval to the wilderness. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the Gigafactory will use “relatively little” water and has asserted that the wilderness that was vacated before the plant’s structure was “not a natural forest” since it had only been planted to make cardboard.
Musk first declared openly in 2019 that Tesla would discover its European gigafactory — that he has called a “machine that builds the machine” — in Germany.
