SOCALGAS AND FORD TO DEVELOP SUPER DUTY HYDROGEN FUEL CELL ELECTRIC TRUCK

SoCalGas and Ford Motor Company are driving towards a clean future! The two companies are working to reduce commercial fleet emissions by developing and testing a F-550 Super Duty Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Truck. The project represents a unique opportunity to decarbonize large fleets like utilities that require long ranges, fast refueling, onboard power needs, and 24/7 emergency response.
This demonstration is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SuperTruck 3 program, which aims to significantly reduce emissions in medium and heavy-duty trucks.
Ford will provide SoCalGas with a F-550 Super Duty Truck to evaluate the prototype truck’s performance under real-world conditions. We were chosen to evaluate how the truck can meet the rigorous demands of utility work and because of our climate and geographical location. The demonstration project will also include a temporary hydrogen refueling station at our Bakersfield facility. The truck is expected to deploy in 2025.
SoCalGas’ fleet already includes 50 hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (HFCEVs), making the company among the first utilities in the nation to start transitioning to hydrogen-powered vehicles. More recently, SoCalGas announced plans to install 1,500 electric vehicle chargers at 67 company facilities by end of 2024. Currently, a third of our over-the-road fleet operates on clean fuels.
“We are honored to work with Ford on their strategy to help reduce emissions,” said Neil Navin, vice president of clean energy innovations at SoCalGas. “This project is a critical step toward finding real-world solutions to decarbonize heavy duty transportation such as our utility fleet with Ford’s H2 Fuel Cell Electric F-550.”
