With a capacity up to six times the size of earlier hydrogen stations, California’s Mission Hills station is open for business.
Announcing the news yesterday (26th Oct), California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP) said it is one of the first hydrogen stations in California serving passenger cars to have four fuelling positions.
Located in the San Fernando Valley, the station, developed by FirstElement Fuel, will be open 24 hours a day and has a capacity of 1,200kg and five nozzles (four H70 and one H35).
The price of hydrogen at the Mission Hills station is $13.14 per kilogram.
Offering 100% renewable hydrogen, the station will be able to fuel three cars simultaneously, increasing the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
CaFCP said this station, and future stations like it, will help to meet the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the San Fernando Valley, the greater Los Angeles area and across California.
H2 View will publish an exclusive interview with the California Fuel Cell Partnership’s Bill Elrick and Keith Malone in its upcoming November print magazine.
