      I think I saw someone suggest they are already redeeming portions of the grant as funds arrive. Personally, I’m still trying to pull the cash together to be one of the first 2000.

        Someone said they withdrew $500k from Republic the other day, that might tie into the grant maybe?

    The objectives of this Agreement are to:
    • Leverage resources for manufacturing scale-up to 20,000 Aptera solar ZEVs annually by
    • Establish the manufacturing capacity to fill existing Aptera vehicle reservations that will
    result in a reduction to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 100,000 metric tons
    (MT) and criteria pollutants by 200 MT during the term of the Project; and 200,000 MT and
    400 MT, respectively, three years after the completion of the Project.
    • Attract and employ a minimum of 5 percent of Aptera’s workforce from disadvantaged
    communities (DAC), Indian Tribes, and community colleges serving DACs, focusing on the
    DACs near Ample’s Vista, CA facility.
    • Establish manufacturing operations in Vista, CA and Carlsbad, CA.
    • Relocate Aptera-Elaphe In-Wheel Motor manufacturing from Europe to California by the
    fourth quarter of 2025.
    • Train at least 444 Aptera factory workers for various Aptera manufacturing jobs.

    Thank you! WOW what an interesting read. It seems as though if Aptera had not followed the recommendations of Sandy Munro they would be a lot further back in the process. The need to collect information and documentation along the way will be vital in preparation of the required reporting. Good info on Elaphe plan also. Man I sure hope they can retain both the Vista and Carlsbad facilities. They are going to need them BOTH!

or to reply.
