Groundbreaking for New Hydrogen Fueling Facility
Serving ‘Largest Fuel Cell Fleet Outside of California’

SARTA, the Canton, Ohio-based Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, is hosting a groundbreaking on Tuesday, January 5 for what promises to be one of the nation’s largest hydrogen fueling facilities. Taking advantage of federal funding, SARTA expects to field seven hydrogen fuel cell buses next year for “the largest fuel cell fleet outside of California in the U.S.”

Clean Energy is helping customers who are finding their facility conversions to be as much of a challenge as their fueling installations. Clean Energy CNG station for SARTA, Ohio’s Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (F&F, August 29, 2011) is shown here.

“This is a big step for SARTA and Ohio,” SARTA CEO Kirt Conrad says in an invitational bulletin.
