According to additional information in the  Detroit Free Press, the power plant will generate hydrogen fuel and stationary power by capturing methane gas from dairy cattle waste. T  he system should be operational by 2020, and will be the nation's first commercial-scale 100% renewable power and hydrogen generation plant. 

Per the  Detroit Free Press article, once operational, the facility can supply approximately 2.35 megawatts of electricity and 1.2 tons of hydrogen per day. This is the equivalent of about 2,350 average sized houses and nearly 1,500 FCVs.

California Air Resources Board Approves $663 Million Low-Carbon Transportation Plan

On December 14, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved a $663 million funding plan to increase the use of clean cars, heavy-duty trucks, buses and freight equipment. 

The majority of funding for the Fiscal Year 2017-18 plan comes from California's cap-and-trade auction proceeds. According to CARB, the funding helps support the state's emissions reduction goals, as outlined in the 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan. 

Fuel cells and hydrogen fuel are mentioned multiple times in the Scoping Plan as sustainable energy sources that can help the state achieve its ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, and an additional 40% reduction by 2030. 

CARB's funding plan allocates $398 million to incentivize clean heavy-duty trucks, buses and freight projects, including $190 million for advanced-technology freight equipment such as yard trucks, forklifts and cranes. This includes medium- and heavy-duty fuel cell freight vehicles and equipment, as outlined in California's 2016 Sustainable Freight Action Plan. 

California's Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, which offers up to $5,000 in rebates for the purchase or lease of new, eligible zero-emission and plug-in hybrid vehicles, also received an additional $140 million from the funding plan. The Toyota Mirai, Honda Clarity, and Hyundai Tuscon fuel cell vehicles are all eligible for rebates.
