Solar-Powered Hydrogen Fuel Station Still Opens

solar powered fueling station

A solar-powered hydrogen fueling station officially opened in Woodland, CA due to a joint venture between the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), British Petroleum, Ford Motor Company and the U.S. Department of Energy. It opened just days after the state gutted rules to increase the number of hydrogen-powered cars on our roads.

The station works by utilizing solar energy to separate hydrogen from water to power clean-fuel vehicles. The solar panels produce 80 kilowatts of electricity, which is about enough energy to power 40 homes or 14 fuel-cell vehicles. Currently it will be used to power 7 fuel cell vehicles from SMUD.
