SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – November 1st, 2018 – Envision Solar International, Inc. (QTCQB: EVSI), the leading producer of unique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security and outdoor media, announced the successful delivery and deployment of EV ARC™ products to California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) locations, including Elkhorn Slough Ecological Reserve and the Department’s License and Revenue Branch at Los Alamitos. The EV ARC™ units will provide charging for CDFW fleet and employee vehicles. The delivery marks the first EV ARC™ products to be deployed by CDFW.
CDFW will benefit from the EV ARC™ products due to contracting requirements because of its rapid installation that brings clean, non-disruptive EV charging infrastructure to remote, ecologically sensitive locations. The versatile EV ARC™ product provides both EV charging and backup power even in remote locations. EV ARC™ products enable the fastest and least impactful installation of permanent EV charging products, often with the lowest total cost of ownership in built-up environments. In remote locations like parks, they can be the only viable solution available.
“The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is the latest agency to recognize the benefits of driving on sunshine with our EV ARC™ products,” said Envision Solar CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to enabling more clean, green, impact-free charging infrastructure for them in the future.”
CDFW’s deployment of the EV ARC™ products is in line with new goals set by the State to increase the adoption of 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 zero-emission vehicle 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. EV ARC™ 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 1100 miles per day. The EV ARC™ system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ (patented) which causes the solar array to follow the sun, generating up to 25% more electricity than a fixed array. The energy is stored in the EV ARC™ product’s onboard energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide EV charging and emergency power during grid failure. The EV ARC™ product is a permanent solution that provides Level I, Level II and DC Fast Charging but because it requires no trenching, foundations or installation work of any kind, it is deployed in minutes and can be moved to a new location with ease. EV ARC™ products are manufactured in the company’s San Diego facility by combat veterans, individuals with disabilities, and other minority demographics and highly talented, mission-driven team members.
