The San Francisco Harrison Street hydrogen station officially opened for business yesterday, bringing the total number of stations in California to 43.
The second of three stations that will open in the city of San Francisco, the station has been developed by Shell and will be open 24 hours a day.
Like its recently opened sibling station on 3rd Street, the Shell Harrison Street hydrogen station will have larger capacity and more fuelling positions to meet the needs of the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the Bay Area.
The station’s capacity is 513 kilograms and has two fuelling nozzles at H70 pressure.
With two fuelling nozzles, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously, increasing the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The station, which is located at 1201 Harrison Street, offers 100% renewable hydrogen. California requires that at least 33% of hydrogen fuel come from renewable sources.
For stations that qualify for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard ZEV infrastructure credit, that amount increases to 40%.
