No, it was DOE, apparently for "vehicle testing". I'll be interested to see what my tax dollar bought with that.

I'll try and find the DOE source data.

"In addition to the stimulus funds it received in 2010 as part of the EV Project, Ecotality got a $26.4 million Energy Department grant in October of last year as part of DOE’s “Advanced Vehicle Testing and Evaluation project.” The award makes Ecotality the exclusive tester for the project."

Yes, of course, they applied for California money, and no doubt China money, and money from any place they can get it.

6.3 Additional Financing
 
The Company may obtain additional funds through loans from domestic or foreign financial institutions on terms and conditions approved by the Board of Directors and the Parties.

In the event a Party does agree to lend funds to the Company or to guarantee a loan to the Company from a third party or financial institution, such Party shall be entitled to be paid interest on the loan at such rate or guarantee fees in such amount that such Party would have been entitled to be paid as if such Party were not a party to this Contract and as if the transaction were a negotiated arm’s length financing from a third party. The Company may mortgage or otherwise grant a security interest in those of its assets permitted by law to be mortgaged or secured in order to obtain loans.
