Tesla’s Gigafactory in Berlin receives an offer from a nearby water provider.

Tesla Giga Berlin recently received a proposal for wastewater management from the local water supplier, the Strausberg-Erkner Water Association (WSE). This proposal was discussed at a private meeting on Tuesday attended by 16 WSE members representing the municipalities in the region as well as representatives from Tesla Giga Berlin. During the meeting, the discussion centered around the ongoing dispute concerning the factory’s wastewater management. As part of the agreement, the water supplier agreed to increase Giga Berlin’s limit value for nitrogen from 50 to 1120 milligrams per liter, while maintaining the phosphorous limits.

However, in exchange, WSE requested that Tesla permanently forego 0.4 million cubic meters of water annually. Prior to Giga Berlin’s operations, WSE had agreed to provide 1.8 million cubic meters of water per year as per the contract. In considering their options, WSE is contemplating discontinuing wastewater disposal services for Giga Berlin due to the ongoing dispute. It is important to note that the production halt of the factory has impacted Tesla’s deliveries in the first quarter.
