Envision Solar International, a leading producer of unique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security and outdoor media, received an order from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for more of its EV ARC products for use in Sacramento and Ontario, California. The units will be delivered this month.
The EV ARC units in the order will be placed in leased office locations. EV ARC products are an ideal infrastructure solution for leased real estate because they are not fixed, can be moved and remain the property of the tenant. The Department of Fish and Wildlife has been using the EV ARC product in other locations in California. The Department issued this follow-on order after demonstrating the product’s rapid installation and delivery of clean, non-disruptive EV charging infrastructure and backup power to remote, ecologically sensitive locations.
EV ARC products enable fast and low-impact installation of permanent EV charging solutions often with the lowest total cost of ownership. In remote locations like some parks, they may be the only viable solution available.
“Repeat orders are the strongest endorsement our company and products can get,” Envision Solar CEO Desmond Wheatley said. “New and returning customers have an easier choice to make when they see our products exceeding expectations again and again, even in the toughest environments. California has a much better chance of meeting its aggressive EV charging infrastructure goals when they use our highly scalable, environmental impact-free, ‘Made in California’ products.”
The Department of Fish and Wildlife’s deployment of the EV ARC products are influenced by new goals set by the state to increase the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) and EV charging stations. The State of California has set a goal of having at least 1.5 million EVs in use in the State by 2025 and Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-48-18 directs State entities to spur the installation of 250,000 ZEV chargers by 2025.
Invented and manufactured in California, the patented EV ARC and EV ARC HP products fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. The EV ARC product generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. EV ARC HP DC fast charging systems provide up to 1,100 miles per day.
The EV ARC system’s solar electrical generation features EnvisionTrak (patented) which causes the solar array to follow the sun, generating up to 25 percent more electricity than a fixed array. The energy is stored in EV ARC’s on-board energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide EV charging and emergency power during grid failure.
EV ARC is a permanent solution for providing Level I, Level II and DC fast charging. Because it requires no trenching, foundations or installation work, the product can be deployed in minutes and can be moved to a new location easily. EV ARC products are manufactured in the company’s San Diego facility by mission-driven team members including combat veterans, individuals with disabilities and other underserved demographics.
