California is providing part of the funding for the program, which has five stations under construction in the Los Angeles area and two in the Bay Area, one in Emeryville and the other at SFO.

The state has contributed $1.7 million for the SFO station, set to open next year for drivers in the area and for a fleet of SFO shuttle buses, according to the airport.

According to the state's California Hydrogen Highway Network, major automakers have projected 41,000 passenger fuel cell vehicles to be on the roads in Southern California by 2017, and 8,450 in Northern California.

Those numbers will require between 50 and 100 hydrogen fueling stations by that time.
