BAKER FLATS — A Douglas County PUD hydrogen facility is inching closer to completion with sub-grading and rock work underway near the Shell station on Highway 2/97.

The PUD plans to make hydrogen fuel at the site and sell it at the PUD’s East Wenatchee offices, along with a new Level 3 electric vehicle charging station.


Hydrogen storage tanks are placed Wednesday for the Douglas County PUD's hydrogen facility.
