Co-op Hydrogen Fueling Stations on Farms

Every once in a while someone will contact me with a unique idea where I feel compelled to publish it on this blog. Kim E. referenced an earlier post about hydrogen cooperatives and wanted to put her own spin on this idea.

Kim E. “Co-op fuel stations, Co-op farm supply, farms, farms use the co-ops to purchase farm supplies, those farm supplies then produce milk ( 1960’s), the co-op trucks then pick up the milk on a schedule. Let’s flip the farms into hydrogen producing suppliers, maintained by the rural family, using co-ops to collect the hydrogen, and distribute to regional fuel stations.

“Farms today handle liquid nitrogen, which in effect is maintained much as hydrogen needs to be maintained, high pressure gas stored in high pressure tanks. To produce hydrogen on small farms where a farm would produce enough hydrogen to supply 40 cars a month. Could amount to 100 dollars a month per car or 4,000 a month income for the farm, farms that now produce nothing, except rent money for the land.

This is the creation of the hydrogen economy, to manufacture the machines to create the hydrogen, store the hydrogen to transport the hydrogen to distribute the hydrogen. Not to mention the manufacturing of the products we use that will consume the hydrogen.”

  1. This is very,very,very good!

  2. That is where we need the refuling infrastructure out along the biways not in the cities where we already have infrastructure.Those aren’t card swipe parking meters going up.

  3. I need to link this to my facebook page

  4. I simply want to tell you that I am just all new to blogs and absolutely savored you’re web blog. Most likely I’m likely to bookmark your site . You absolutely come with remarkable well written articles. Many thanks for sharing with us your blog site.

  5. Is anyone actually doing this yet?

    Not that I know of. This is just an idea of how hydrogen infrastructure could be built on the community basis.

    There is one residential community that is getting a hydrogen fueling station, but it’s not a co-op.
