The Oakland hydrogen station is open for business! It is the eleventh retail hydrogen station to open in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The True Zero station, developed by First Element, will be open 24 hours a day and is located at 350 Grand Avenue, Oakland, CA 94610.
Reflecting the ongoing evolution of hydrogen stations across California and the growing number of fuel cell electric cars (more than 7,400), the station will be supplied with liquid hydrogen and have a capacity of more than 800 kilograms. This is the first of the larger capacity and liquid hydrogen True Zero stations. It has more than three times the capacity of previously built open retail True Zero stations. It will also have two fueling positions with three nozzles, two at H70 and one at H35.
With two fueling positions, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously, increasingly the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.
The opening of the station occurs on the same day that Governor Newsom issued his first climate executive order, part of which focuses state agency action on creating demand for zero emission vehicles.
The Oakland station joins ten other hydrogen retail stations in the San Francisco Bay Area that are in operation, in addition to one that is being upgraded and 10 more that are in development.

CaFCP has a mobile-friendly website, Station Operational Status System (SOSS), that shows station availability and provides other station information (hours of operation, address, H2 station operator and developer, etc.): https://m.cafcp.org.
The original blog post had the Oakland station listed as the tenth station to open in the SF Bay Area. The blog post has been edited to say that the station is the eleventh station to open in the SF Bay Area.
