Tesla files permit to officially begin construction at Giga Berlin

Giga Berlin March update

The Brandenburg Environmental Ministry was recently the recipient of Tesla’s permit application to begin construction of the foundation of the future Giga Berlin.

Last month Tesla completed the tree clearing at the site after a short delay. An environmentalist group filed a petition to stop the clearing, but it was quickly thrown out by a German court.

Based on recent updates from the site, Tesla has now all but completed ground levelling at the site in preparation for the start of construction.

Tesla had initially planned for construction to begin in March, with Tesla CEO Elon Musk commenting on Twitter he was going to attend the groundbreaking. That now appears unlikely as travel restrictions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 have banned travel to most parts of the world.
