Tesla will pay a fine of $ 31,000 for violating environmental regulations at the Fremont plant. Also, the company was obliged to purchase rescue equipment worth 55 thousand dollars for the fire department of the city.

Tesla has reached an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency on violations of hazardous waste that were discovered at the company’s plant in Fremont, California, reports The Verge.

In 2017, after checking at the Tesla plant in Fremont, the Environmental Protection Agency concluded that the company did not comply with the standards for emissions to the atmosphere and the standards for hazardous waste. Despite the fact that after checking in, Tesla was informed about the elimination of all gaps, it was still fined, and the obligation to purchase equipment for the Fremont fire station.

“In the 16 months since EPA’s visit, Tesla has made great strides in its environmental program and its constant observance under the leadership of Lori Shelby, our vice president for environment, health and safety. We are pleased to cooperate with the EPA and will take a number of steps to properly handle hazardous waste in the workplace, ”the company said.
