Plug Power, the first tenant at the new manufacturing park, is also funding the construction of a 450 megawatt electricity substation that will support its hydrogen projection facility and future growth opportunities at STAMP.

As North America's largest green hydrogen production facility, the plant will produce 45 metric tons of green liquid hydrogen daily servicing the Northeast region.

When fully built, the facility will offer the company's transportation fuel customers pricing competitive to diesel, leading the way to decarbonizing freight transportation and logistics supporting New York's path to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

Additionally, the company has committed to creating up to 68 new jobs.
