California opened its first Hydrogen refueling station today. It’s located on Santa Monica Blvd just West of the 405 highway. To make it economically viable – for the station that is – the station also offers conventional gasoline. Hydrogen production will be done on site using electrolysis and stored in a tank for daily fueling.
Talk about not smoking a cigarette at the pump. Although, I’ve heard the risk is equitable to standard gasoline. No word on cost per liter or gallon, but I’ll see if I can get down there in the next few days and take a peak (I live blocks away).
