Crane knocks down power line at Tesla’s Fremont Factory – production temporarily shutdown due to the power outage

According to NBC Bay Area, a crane knocked down a power line at Tesla’s Fremont factory Friday morning, creating a power outage and forcing Tesla to temporarily close the factory. PG&E, the local electric utility, is already on site according to a Tesla representative and the company is evaluating the situation.

Any shutdown of the Fremont factory is a big deal for Tesla since the location is the only manufacturing facility of the company’s only product, the Model S.
