Things to do:
This is an industrial area, with nothing interesting within easy walking distance. There is a deli on the same side of Industrial Blvd., about half a mile to the west.
If the building is open, there are interesting displays and literature in the lobby.
Notice the DaimlerChrysler Necar in the photo, along with the 4500-gallon Hydrogen tank. The Necar just happened to drive by as I was taking the photo. The Hydrogen tank is behind a locked gate. You can see it up close on the monthly tour, which includes a refueling demonstration.

Contact information:
Please check at the front desk or with the guard to let them know you are there charging your car, especially if it is after hours.
The California Fuel Cell Partnership has public tours on the fourth Friday of every month, from 1 to 3 pm. Call 916-371-2870 to confirm.
