Hydrogen blending is becoming an increasingly popular technology to power household systems and appliances with California set to benefit from successful tests in this area.

"Revealed on Thursday (Sept 30), Southern California Gas (SoCalGas) has successfully tested a blend of 20% hydrogen through a closed loop natural gas system which now paves the way to decarbonise household systems."

Until green hydrogen becomes viable, Charley, it's only "paving the way" to higher emissions, higher rates for gas customers, and higher profits for Sempra. For customers and the environment, it's a loser.

That's still 80% gas, so still plenty of areas of concern, but I think these types of programs will be where you start to see the demand for an H2 market grow which can have a domino effect towards the much discussed hydrogen economy
