AltFuel Solutions (Sylvania, OH) announced receipt of a fifty-fifty grant through the Ohio Department of Development, Office of Energy Efficiency, to conduct Phase I of a demonstration hydrogen fuel station project in the Cleveland area. The new facility will refuel natural gas, hydrogen, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, and will include a small stationary fuel cell powered by excess station hydrogen and rooftop solar panels to supply additional power.

Phase I of the planning and design of the new facility is scheduled for completion by December 2, 2002. Phase II, facility construction and demonstration leading into commercial operation, is scheduled for completion within 15 months of Phase II funding. Phase III, adding renewable energy, hydrogen-producing systems as they become more cost-competitive, is scheduled for completion within nine months of Phase III funding.
