The Citrus Heights hydrogen station is open for business! It is the 37th retail hydrogen station in California and is located in the greater Sacramento area.
The station, developed by Shell, will be open 24 hours a day and is located at 6141 Greenback Lane, Citrus Heights, CA 95621.
Reflecting the ongoing evolution of hydrogen stations across California and the growing number of fuel cell electric cars (more than 5,600), the station is one of a few that has two fueling positions (rough translation: two nozzles) at H70.
Many stations built before #37 have two nozzles, one dispensing at H70 and the other at H35. (For an explanation of the difference between H35 and H70, visit the Q&A from our recent station webinar and scroll down to our explanation.)
With two nozzles at H70, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously and increase the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The Citrus Heights station joins the West Sacramento station to support fuel cell electric car drivers in the area. Another hydrogen station in Sacramento is expected to open in the near future.
