E.dis, a subsidiary of E.ON, reports progress in fixing the electricity outage at Tesla’s German gigafactory near Berlin. The outage could potentially allow power to resume as early as Monday.

Accelerated Weekend Assembly Work:

Speedy assembly work over the weekend contributes to the possibility of electricity being restored to the gigafactory sooner than expected.

The outage was triggered by an arson attack on a nearby power pylon, claimed by activists from the far-left Vulkangruppe, disrupting operations at the Gruenheide site since March 5.

While Tesla initially anticipated the outage would last until March 15, the Brandenburg plant’s works council chief hinted at a resumption of operations within the week without specifying a date.

Pending High-Voltage Test and Approval:

According to E.dis, the power supply’s resumption hinges on a high-voltage test and engineers’ official approval, both scheduled for Monday.

Once power is restored, Tesla plans to gradually restart its systems; however, the timeline for full production resumption remains uncertain.

Intensive Efforts to Expedite Restoration:

E.dis employees have been working in a three-shift mode to accelerate restoring electricity, potentially shortening the outage period.

The outage disrupts Tesla’s daily production by approximately 1,000 cars, with estimates suggesting significant financial losses amounting to hundreds of millions of euros.
