New Hydrogen Fueling Stations Operating in California and Illinois
The ability to fill the tanks of fuel cell vehicles increased on May 21, 2007, when Southern California Edison and Chevron Technology Ventures LLC dedicated a new hydrogen fueling station at the utility's headquarters in Rosemead, California. The fueling station, which was partially funded by DOE, employs an electrolyzer to convert water into hydrogen and oxygen, producing 40 kilograms of hydrogen per day with 60 kilograms of hydrogen storage. A hydrogen fueling station also opened at the Gas Technology Institute in Des Plaines, Illinois, in April 2007. The state's first hydrogen station will produce hydrogen from natural gas or ethanol or through the electrolysis of water. It will be publicly available with credit-card access.
