Humboldt State Now

A newly completed upgrade to Humboldt State’s hydrogen fueling station has connected HSU to California’s Hydrogen Highway, an emerging statewide network of such stations.

With the new 700-bar compressor, engineers at the Schatz Energy Research Center (SERC) can now fully charge the university’s two Toyota FCHV-advs. Each vehicle stores 6 kilograms of compressed hydrogen and has a driving range of about 400 miles.
