Plug Power plans to develop a green hydrogen production plant in Camden County, Georgia, to service clients in the southeastern United States.
The statement acknowledges Plug Power’s intent to construct the first North American green hydrogen supply network, as the Camden County plant broadens the service area of Plug Power.
15 tons per day of liquid green hydrogen, generated using 100% renewable energy and designed to fuel transportation, including material handling and fuel cell electric vehicle fleets. Plug Power is investing $84 million in the factory, and it is expected to create at about 24 jobs by 2022. To further increase Plug Power’s business potential, Camden County, GA, offers a great deal of value. Plug Power’s customers like Home Depot and Southern Company have nearby access to I-95, the key north-south roadway on the East Coast of the United States.
With this hydrogen production plant, we are expanding our green hydrogen network to provide zero-emissions fuel to customers in Georgia and across the Southeast.”Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power.
Plug Power is working closely with local and state authorities as it moves forward with the project. Plug Power has signed a Purchase Power Agreement with Okefenokee Rural Electric Membership Corporation to source the renewable electricity needed to power the plant. Additionally, the company is entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with Camden County Joint Development Authority for land and local site support. The exact location for the plant and details about construction and job openings will be announced upon finalization later this year.
