Gov. Bush Begins Construction on Florida's First Hydrogen Station

February 18, 2005

ORLANDO, FL – Officials from ChevronTexaco and Ford Motor Co. joined Gov. Jeb Bush in downtown Orlando to signal the start of construction of Florida's first hydrogen generating station, according to the Orlando Business Journal.

The state ordered eight Ford 12-passenger hydrogen shuttle buses, becoming the first customer for such an order. The engine runs on hydrogen fuel instead of gasoline and emits only steam from the exhaust.

The fuel center lies on property owned by Progress Energy, and is a test platform for hydrogen as a transportation fuel. Companies worldwide are investing more than $2 billion annually to grow the hydrogen industry and expand with new, sustainable sources of energy, according to state officials.
