Department of Energy Funds Trikes

Three-wheeled, alternative energy vehicles like the Aptera may soon qualify for funding from the Dept. of Energy.

"The bill, which would open Energy Department funds to companies such as Aptera Motors and Elio Motors, was passed by the Senate yesterday as part of the energy appropriations bill after being approved by the House.

'This is a huge win for scientific innovation and the environment,' said Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Calif., a co-sponsor of the original bill. 'We need more innovation and less regulation when it comes to promoting new ways to save energy while saving money at the pump.'"
