Germany: Water turned off at Tesla Gigafactory over unpaid bills
US-based electric car manufacturer Tesla has lost water access at its plant in Germany due to unpaid bills. A spokeswoman for the water company, Wasserverband Strausberg-Erkner (WSE), said Tesla was repeatedly warned that it was behind on its payments. “The 14-day notice period has expired,” WSE spokeswoman Sandra Ponesky told the Associated Press. “We can’t treat Tesla any differently than other customers.” Ponesky said that as soon as the company paid the amount it owed, the tap would be turned back on. She did not say how much Tesla owed.
