ClearEdge Power received a $1 million investment, a sign that the fuel cell market is picking up speed.

Southern California Gas Co invested in the Hillsboro-based fuel cell company to demonstrate a commitment to alternative fuel sources.

If the fuel cell market continues to pick up speed, ClearEdge could very well be a candidate for an initial public offering of stock. In addition to the $1 million from SoCalGas, ClearEdge closed on $25 million in private investment in 2010 and is seeking another round with the help of Goldman Sachs.
