On May 15, our representatives voted to support Council File 22-0255, which the NCSA energy committee recommended we support. The motion proposed that the Department of Water and Power and the Port of Los Angeles submit a proposal to the Department of Energy for funding for a green hydrogen hub to power hard-to-electrify industries, with provisions for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other emissions monitoring.
