ATLANTA (AP) — A company that produces hydrogen to fuel vehicles and electric generators says it will invest $84 million to build a hydrogen refinery in southeast Georgia, hiring 24 people. New York-based Plug Power says the Kingsland plant is one of a network planned nationwide using renewable electricity to break apart water and create liquid hydrogen. The hydrogen can fuel vehicles and electric generators. The company says the new plant will begin operating by the middle of 2022. The Georgia plant will buy huge amounts of solar electricity. Local governments will give property tax breaks worth a projected $6.2 million over 10 years.
