I have lost track of whether California Taxpayers have been asked
to help fund Hydrogen refueling stations and the like. If so,
why? Won't it be a profitable business for Hydrogen sellers to
mine and harvest hydrogen and sell it?
Ok, so maybe some good-old public-private partnership is in
order, but how does the cost to taxpayers compare to the cost to
taxpayers for installation of plug-in-vehicle electric recharging
stations? I would like to keep an eye out for credible estimates
from all sides. Maybe PIA can help at some point, if they think
that keeping an eye on this issue of cost-to-taxpayers of
infrastructure installation might be of some good importance.
Here is a California Government website discussing the hydrogen

Here is the latest news story discussing how bad the state of the
finances of the government are in California:
