As California leads in developing a clean tech economy it is important we get involved with our state government.  Right now The California Air Resources Board (CARB) needs your input on Volkswagen (VW) subsidiary Electrify America second stage of investment $800 million in California.

You may recall the VW emissions scandal that has resulted in a commitment from VW to invest in Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV).  It is the same program that brought $44 million Green City investment in Sacramento.

The CARB  has received the second 30‑month ZEV Investment Plan from Electrify America. The Plan describes how Electrify America is proposing to spend the second $200 million of its $800 million California ZEV Investment Commitment.
