Decided to start this thread, analogous to the Tesla SC thread, as H2 stations are finally starting to do more than dribble out. This thread tracks only full retail stations, not the dem/val stations.

As of 1/22/16, there are 8 full retail stations in California:

Southern California
Costa Mesa
Diamond Bar
L.A. (Santa Monica Blvd.)
Irvine (UC)
San Juan Capistrano

Bay Area
San Jose

Sacramento Area
W. Sacramento

Other
Coalinga

Torrance is one of the dem/val stations, although IIRR they were talking about upgrading it to full retail.

I imagine they'll be in the same range as the two stations we have prices for. IIRR, Diamond Bar was $13.99/kg, and West Sacramento was $13.59 ($13.49?)/kg when they opened. My local station had the dispenser powered up a few days ago but it was displaying an error message, so I imagine it's still not in commission. I expect it will be by the end of the month, after which the O&M subsidy will drop from 80% to 60%. The station hasn't made room on their lighted gas (plus diesel and ethanol) price signs to show it, so maybe they'll just leave it for the dispenser itself. Realistically, there's no room on those signs so they'd have to add another one, and that may not be worth the trouble this early in the game - anyone who needs H2 will know where to get it.
