State Grant Will Help Redding Rancheria Start Hydrogen Plant In Red Bluff

Redding Rancheria is becoming a Hydrogen fuel producer. The tribe that owns Win River Casino and several area health clinics is getting into the clean energy business with a look ahead at California’s zero emissions rules. Seeing a big market for truck fuel on the I-5 corridor, the tribe is partnering with a company of experts in the field to develop a plant in Red Bluff that will produce more than 10,000 Kilograms of Hydrogen a day with a new more efficient process. The plant will use biomass from dead trees and underbrush already being cleared from forests to reduce wildfire danger. The project will get a boost from a $500,000 grant from the State Department of Conservation.
