Plug Power will invest $84 million to build a hydrogen refinery in southeast Georgia, hiring 24 people. Plug Power, based in Latham, New York, said the Kingsland plant is one of a network planned nationwide that will use renewable-produced electricity to break apart water and create liquid hydrogen.
The Georgia plant will have an initial capacity of 15 tons of hydrogen per day. It will use solar electricity supplied by Nahunta-based Okefenokee Rural Electric Membership Corp. Spokesperson Michele Hutchins said Plug Power would be the cooperative’s largest industrial customer, consuming up to 47.5 megawatts of power. That’s enough electricity to power more than 40,000 Georgia homes.
The Camden County plant joins previously announced green hydrogen facilities in South Central Pennsylvania and the Western New York Science, Technology and Advanced Manufacturing Park (STAMP), all of which contribute toward Plug Power’s goal of producing more than 500 tons per day of green hydrogen by 2025. Together with Plug Power’s existing plant in Tennessee, acquired in 2020, and its PEM stack and electrolyzer Innovation Center in Rochester, N.Y., this plant further strengthens the company’s position as a leader in advancing the green hydrogen ecosystem.
