San Francisco’s first, and the state of California’s 42nd, hydrogen station is open for business.
Located on 551 3rd Street, it is the first of three stations to open in the city of San Francisco.
Developed by Shell, it has a larger capacity and more fuelling positions to meet the needs of the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the Bay Area.
The station, which will be open 24 hours a day, has a capacity of 513 kilograms and has two fuelling nozzles at H70 pressure.
With two fuelling nozzles, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously, increasingly the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The station 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%.
