The unique and patent pending EV ARC™ (Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger) is the worlds first fully autonomous, fully mobile, fully Renewable Electric Vehicle Charging station.
Designed and fabricated in the US by Envision Solar, it is dimensioned to sit comfortably inside a standard parking space (9′x18′) and is ADA compliant.
The 2.3kW Solar Array generates approximately 16kWhrs per day, which are stored, ready for use in the 22kWhr battery storage. Clean solar electrical generation is enhanced by Envisions proprietary and patent pending tracking solution – EnvisionTrak™ that causes the solar array to follow the sun as it moves across the sky.
An EV ARC™ will fully charge one typical EV per day or offer 1/4 charges to multiple EVs in city environments where users will park in them while having lunch, running errands or taking a meeting.
The electricity provided to the EVs is 100% renewable, clean and solar powered making the EVs that charge from EV ARC™ 100% emissions free unlike when they charge from the Grid – which in the US takes more than 75% of it’s generation from carbon based fuels.
Mounted on an attractive, ballasted pad, the EV ARC™ does not require any foundations, trenching, electrical upgrades or even a building permit. It is 100% self-contained and is delivered to the site ready to use on it’s own undercarriage.
Deployment time is about 5 minutes instead of several weeks for a traditional, grid tied EV charger. If the host site later prefers a different site for the charger they can simply move it. Furthermore the host will not experience any increase in utility bills caused by kWh charges or demand charges resulting from use of the chargers.
“Driving on Sunshine” offers the most exciting new experience for American motorists since the invention of the automobile. EV ARC™ delivers that experience, attractively, efficiently and in an economically viable manner. EV ARC™ is right for the environment, right for the consumer, right for the Grid and right for America.
