“We are thrilled to open the first HYLA hydrogen refueling station in Southern California, marking a significant milestone for Nikola and offering convenient access for our customers,” said Ole Hoefelmann, president of energy, in a statement. “Easing the transition to a zero-emission trucking future and prioritizing access to a hydrogen solution network is our top objective and we’re just getting started.
