San Francisco Mission Street Hydrogen Station Opens

By February 14, 2020

  • It is the third of three Shell hydrogen stations open in the City of San Francisco.

The Mission Street station, developed by Shell, will be open 24 hours a day and is located at 3550 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.

About 70% of San Francisco residents live in multi-unit buildings, where installing battery charging can be prohibitively expensive. These new hydrogen stations—and the growing network across California—provide robust shared fueling infrastructure at existing gas stations that drivers can rely on, giving them the ability to drive zero-emission.

Like the stations on 3rd Street and Harrison Street, the Mission Street hydrogen station will have a larger capacity and more fueling positions to meet the needs of the growing fuel cell passenger car market in the Bay Area. The station’s capacity is 560 kilograms and has two fueling nozzles at H70 pressure.

With two fueling nozzles, two cars will be able to fuel simultaneously, increasing the number of vehicles served in a shorter time.

The station – and the other San Francisco stations – offers 100% renewable hydrogen from biogas. California requires that at least 33% of hydrogen fuel come from renewable sources. For stations that qualify for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard ZEV infrastructure credit, that amount increases to 40%.

CaFCP has a mobile-friendly website, Station Operational Status System (SOSS), that shows station availability and provides other station information, including hours of operation, address, H2 station operator and developer, etc.: http://m.cafcp.org.
