California Gets Ready for Hydrogen Fueled Cars

California is building a network of hydrogen refueling stations with funding by the California Energy Commission to support the growing number of zero-emission hydrogen fuel-cell cars hitting the marketplace. The cars have a similar driving range as cars that run on petroleum, but don’t pollute.

The Energy Commission has provided funding for 49 hydrogen refueling stations and hopes to open 46 stations by the end of 2015. The first station opened in September 2014 in West Sacramento and the second station opened in March this year in Diamond Bar.

The Energy Commission supports hydrogen-fuel cell vehicles as one of several alternative and renewable fueled vehicles, including plug in electric cars, which will help California cut its petroleum use in half by 2030 and help achieve the state’s clean air and climate goals.
