StratosFuel, based out of San Bernardino, California, received $3M from Cal Energy Commission to Build Alternate Fuel Stations.

The California Energy Commission (CEC) announced a grant for “Renewable Hydrogen Transportation Fuel Production” on April 9, 2021. This grant application was an offer to support building hydrogen production facilities that will create sustainable hydrogen transportation fuel using renewable resources from inside the state. 

We Covered this in our Weekly Wire Roundup

Core Purpose of the Program

These funds were used to design, engineer, build, install, test, operate, and maintain a hydrogen facility in California that will produce 100% renewable hydrogen from in-state renewable resources.

Once completed and operating, the plant will be a 100 percent renewable hydrogen source used as a transportation fuel. When distributed at a station, the hydrogen produced will fulfill California standards for usage in on-road fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), both light-duty and medium-/heavy-duty.

The CEC also reserved the right to raise or decrease the amount of money available under this solicitation at its sole discretion.
