The awards resulted from an earlier solicitation (PON-13-602) under the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP).

Please, someone comment on how California is bankrupt but keeps spending. Ha Ha Ha! Where all the crazy fiscally responsible minions of the wealthy now with their lies and pandering to their masters. What's it like to eat dirt and have to say you like it, all you old mental weaklings? Conservatism as defined by reality is slavery to the wealthy. It probably meant something else once, but not any more.
