Air Products’ California fueling stations offering hydrogen below $10 per kg
. . . Advancements in fueling technology and a greater volume of vehicles now using the stations were important factors in allowing the pricing move to less than $10 per hydrogen kilogram ($9.99/kg).
Currently there are five Air Products California hydrogen fueling stations able to provide hydrogen at this new pricing. The five stations are all supplied with hydrogen from Air Products’ world-class hydrogen production and pipeline-connected facilities in Wilmington and Carson, California. The stations with the new pricing are located in West Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, Fairfax, Santa Monica, and the fifth is soon-to-be operational in Lawndale. . . .
Still quite a ways to go to be competitive with gasoline, but moving in the right direction. OTOH, this is the cheapest type of H2, using central point SMR (but like all transportation H2 in the state, must meet or exceed the 33% RFS) and in some cases pipeline delivery. I'll have to check my nearest H2 station (First Element/True Zero) to see if they've dropped any, as they've been charging $16.78/kg. pretty much since they opened. However, there's still no competition for them in the East Bay (scheduled to change, as stations in Fremont and San Ramon are supposed to complete in Q2, but we'll see) so little incentive to do so yet.
At $9.99/kg, the $15k of fuel that Toyota and Honda are providing for lessees over three years would take a Mirai over 100k miles at its 67 mpkg EPA rating. Edmunds got an average of 58.9 mpkg (high 74.3 in relaxed driving, low 41.9 during track testing) over the 6 months of their long-term test, so using that instead would still get you over 88,400 miles in three years. Of course, Toyota only gives you 12k miles a year on the basic $349/month 36-month lease, so it's kind of moot. Bottom line, though, is that you can be certain that you won't have to pay for fuel at any time in the three years at this price, without radically exceeding your mileage limit in the Mirai or even the Clarity (which comes with 20k miles/year on the base $369/month base lease, and is rated at 68 MPGe).
