Sumter Utilities customers working together for reduce carbon with a hydrogen hub

Nov 15, 2022

In a press release from Battelle Memorial Institute, several utilities across the Southeast region announced plan to establish a six-state hydrogen hub in an effort to share resources and meet targets for carbon reduction.

Companies such as Duke Energy, Dominion Energy, and Southern Company – all customers of Sumter Utilities – plan to purse federal financial support from the department of energy, which recently allocated 8 billion to hydrogen hubs as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

 The clean energy transition has motivated utilities to search for energy resources to help them decarbonize, and hydrogen offers a huge opportunity to help them meet their goals.
