2022 - Assembly Bill 1312 (Rodriguez, Freddie), Hydrogen Fuel Standard and Tax Credit (Dead)
Energy, Fuels, Incentives
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have required CARB to phase in a 100 percent green and zero carbon hydrogen fuel standard by 2045. The bill would have provided a ten year, steadily declining set of personal and corporate income tax credits for green hydrogen production and distribution, as well as for hydrogen fueling stations. CARB would have had to annually certify green hydrogen production and available hydrogen fueling stations to the Franchise Tax Board. Green hydrogen was defined to be hydrogen not produced from fossil fuel feedstock sources. Was not heard in the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.
