Vancouver, CANADA


VANCOUVER, British Columbia and NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clean Power Capital Corp. (CSE: MOVE)(FWB: 2K6)(OTC: MOTNF) (“Clean Power” or the “Company” or "MOVE"). The Company and its investee company, PowerTap Hydrogen Fueling Corp. (“PowerTap”), is pleased that the city of Petaluma, California has announced a ban on new gas stations to encourage the deployment of Hydrogen fueling station and battery electric charging stations1. This city ban is consistent with State of California’s mission to mandate that all new vehicles be emission free by 20352.

“The recent announcements by Petaluma, CA and the State of California are consistent with our thesis that to support hydrogen vehicles (cars and long trucks) that will be hitting the road in the coming few years, significantly more hydrogen fueling stations will be needed (over the current available ~44 in California3) in California and the rest of the USA. Our PowerTap onsite hydrogen production technology is currently being used for private hydrogen stations in the USA and a public station near LAX and we look forward to installing our new PowerTap 3 to be deployed at existing gas stations starting in the second half of 2021. Our business plan is to install 500+ stations across the USA in the next 5 years.” said Raghu Kilambi, CEO of PowerTap.
