A portable solar recharger — for your car

It’s hard to miss the EV ARC.

The electric car charging station from Envision Solar doesn’t need to be plugged in to the power grid. Nor does it need to be bolted to the ground or cemented in place. It is completely self-contained, getting all its electricity from a big solar panel while its heavy steel base keeps it in place.

And it’s coming to San Francisco.

Envision will deploy three ARCs in the city, moving them periodically to see how much use they get in different settings. The company displayed one ARC, short for Autonomous Renewable Charger, near San Francisco’s UN Plaza on Monday as part of the annual EV Week event promoting plug-in transportation.

“These EV ARCS will allow San Franciscans to drive on sunshine and drive for free, assuming they’re intelligent enough to have an electric car,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision, which is based in San Diego.

Installing an electric vehicle charging station in a parking lot or along a city street typically requires tearing up the pavement to lay a cable to the nearest electrical line. Most cities demand a permit for that kind of work, adding time and expense. The ARC, in contrast, can be installed in 2 minutes, Wheatley said.

Its steel base, weighing about 11,000 pounds, keeps it anchored even in high winds. And the base’s dimensions — 8 feet by 18 feet — fit most parking slots. Electric cars simply roll onto the base and plug in, although on Monday, the company kept the car parked to the side to give the public a better view.

The solar panel, which tilts to track the sun, stores its electricity in a battery pack made by AllCell Technologies of Chicago. The battery pack, in turn, feeds a level-two charger.

The ARC’s San Francisco deployment will be funded by a grant from the Schmidt Family Foundation (that’s Eric and Wendy Schmidt, of Google fame). The non-profit group Charge Across Town, which applied for the grant, will help pick locations, working with several city departments. The plan calls for moving each station every three months in a kind of rolling experiment.

“If you don’t like the location, just move it,” Wheatley said.

Solar-Powered EV Charging Stations Heading to San Francisco

Article Written By RACHEL BARRON at Solar Energy

Need to immediately quell the growing tension between your employees as they jockey with their electric vehicles throughout the day for a spot at the company’s one charging station?

Want to forgo the permitting process, trenching and electrical work needed to connect an EV charging station to the grid? Don’t even have a grid nearby to rig up a charging station?

A San Diego-based company has a solution to these modern-day dilemmas. Called the EV ARC, this 9-by-16-foot solar-powered EV charging station is made up of a ballast pad for cars to park on, and a 21.6 kilowatt-hour battery that stores electricity produced from a 2.3-kilowatt solar canopy.

This grid-free charging station can also be towed to a site like a boat on a boat trailer, and deployed in minutes into a standard parking lot space.

Envision Solar, which makes the technology, shared with SolarEnergy.net on Friday that the EV ARC will be participating in a micro-study of sorts to help San Francisco improve its knowledge on the best place to put a charging station within the city.

The study is being made possible by The 11th Hour Project; a program of The Schmidt Family Foundation, which works in part to boost electric vehicle adoption.

The foundation announced last week that eight projects, one of which includes Envision Solar, would share a $1 million grant.

Envision Solar’s cut of the grant will go toward getting San Francisco three EV ARCs, said Desmond Wheatley, president and CEO of the company.

The plan, according to Wheatley, is to drop the EV ARCs in selected parts of the city and move them about every three months, all the while tracking data, such as usage patterns, length of charging time per vehicle, et cetera.

This will give San Francisco the ability to test and study multiple locations using real data, as opposed to selecting charging station sites based on forecasted or modeled data, Wheatley said.

Enabling the EV ARC to charge electric vehicles completely off-grid is the company’s solar canopy.

Envision Solar isn’t the only one using solar for its charging stations. For example, the Tesla Supercharger network has looked to carport-mounted solar arrays to help feed its high-speed charging stations. BMW has been working on a ground-mounted, wing-like solar charging station. And of course there are those, such as the Ford motor company, who have been experimenting with putting solar on the roof of the car itself.

Historically, the size and number of solar panels have been the determining factor in getting solar-powered EV charging stations to perform relatively on par to grid-tied ones.

That’s why permanent structures supporting multiple solar arrays have been among the most cost-effective way to fill up a charging station with renewable energy.

To get enough renewable energy from an area the size of a single parking space, Envision Solar relies on its solar tracking system. Garnering more power from solar panels on movable mounts programmed to follow the sun is far from new.

But traditional tracking systems tend to follow what Wheatley describes as a swinging motion. “If you swing the solar array in a parking environment, you wind up swinging out to the street, or into the vehicles parked next to you. That’s a litigation [risk],” he said.

To avoid such damage, Wheatley said Envision Solar has designed a tracking system that bows. “It bows to the east, and then it bows south, and then it bows west,” he said, and it does it without leaving the linear alignment of the parking space.

Wheatley also said the EV ARC generates about 16 kilowatt-hours per day, which translates to being able to fully charge one standard electric car, or adding one-fourth charges to multiple electric cars in an urban environment where users tend to connect for shorter stints.

Like many emerging technologies, the EV ARC isn’t cheap. The ones San Francisco are getting cost around $45,000, Wheatley said.

“That’s the total cost,” Wheatley quickly points out, tacking on the fact that the price can drop substantially for customers who can partake in the federal government’s 30 percent solar Investment Tax Credit.

According to Wheatley, Envision Solar has had customers who spent five times the cost of an EV ARC to install grid-tied charging systems due to expenses, like digging up a parking lot, putting in new electric infrastructure, and managing the permitting process.

Despite Wheatley’s zeal for the EV ARC, it could take awhile to assess the market’s desire for the technology. The company is currently moving into its first real production cycle, according to Wheatley.

Whether electric cars get their energy from grid-tied charging stations or the EV ARC, many industry watchers expect the demand for more public charging locations to only grow.

In California, government agencies have been wrestling with getting the infrastructure in place to meet the governor’s executive order of getting 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on state’s roadways by 2025. And market research firm Navigant Research is projecting that there will be more than 35 million electric vehicles on roads worldwide by 2022.

Envision Solar International Solar Tree® Structures Selected by Nationwide Retailer to Provide Renewable Energy

Sustainable EV Charging and Safe Comfortable Shaded Parking

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (Marketwired via COMTEX) – June 12, 2014 – Envision Solar International, Inc., (EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewable energy Media and Branding product company, announced today that its Solar Tree® products have been selected by a nationwide Department Store chain as part of its continuing efforts to protect and conserve the environment through solutions that provide long-term sustainability.

The Solar Tree® arrays will deliver renewable energy, solar powered EV Charging and shade and protection from inclement weather to customers and staff at the department store company’s locations. The first deployment of Envision’s Solar Tree® structures for this company is commencing today in Dallas, Texas. The inclusion of EV chargers on the Solar Tree® arrays will further enhance the retailer’s existing fleet of EV chargers and provide customers and staff the opportunity to drive on sunshine.

The Department Store company is a major retailer with stores and corporate facilities nationwide. Envision Solar was selected because of its focus on creating high quality, architecturally accretive, American made products, which fit perfectly with the retailer’s emphasis on delivering quality and long-term sustainability.

Each Solar Tree® shades six to eight parking spaces and generates enough energy to provide up to 500 miles of totally emissions free driving in a day. The average American drives 36.9 miles per day according to the Federal Highway Administration. When the energy is not being used to charge EVs it will reduce the location’s reliance on utility supplied energy, lowering its energy bills. Each Solar Tree® produces clean renewable energy, reducing as much carbon dioxide as 20 acres of US forests in one year.

“We are delighted that this major retailer has selected our products as part of their ongoing nationwide sustainability efforts,” said Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar. “They are a leader in sustainability and their choice of our products is a major endorsement of the quality, architectural accretion and superior functionality which we deliver. We are proud to be a part of their efforts and look forward to a broad engagement. This is an important day for our company and it serves as further confirmation of our products and the value they deliver to customers like this very large and discerning retailer.”

Invented, engineered and fabricated in the United States, the Solar Tree® covers 8 parking spaces. The system’s clean solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™, which enables the solar array to follow the sun, generating 18 to 25 percent more electricity than a conventional fixed array. Solar Tree® arrays can be outfitted with 6 level two EV chargers or one DC Fast Charger.
