Beam Global Awarded GSA MAS Contract to Provide EV ARC™ Solar EV Charging Infrastructure Products to Federal Government
SAN DIEGO, CA, November 19, 2020—Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable technology for electric vehicle (EV) charging, outdoor media and energy security, today announced the award of their General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract. Federal agencies can now purchase EV ARC™ solar EV Charging infrastructure products on the GSA Advantage!® site. Due to the recent rebrand from Envision Solar to Beam Global, products are listed under Envision Solar while the name change is processed.
GSA MAS Contracts, frequently referred to as GSA Schedules, are pre-competed, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) compliant contracts that serve to streamline the government procurement process. The award of Beam Global’s (formerly Envision Solar) GSA MAS Contract is the result of an extensive evaluation process conducted by GSA, and serves as a testament to the company’s capabilities, performance history and customer satisfaction.
“Beam Global’s GSA Schedule now allows Federal agencies, state and local governments, educational institutions and others to easily purchase the fastest deployed EV charging infrastructure products on the market,” said Desmond Wheatley, Beam Global CEO. “Five Federally funded National Laboratories and the U.S. Navy already use EV ARC™ products. It will be much easier to get follow on orders from them and new orders from other Federal agencies as a result of this contract vehicle being in place. We believe that the timing could not be better: not only do we anticipate significant Federal Stimulus and funding for EV charging infrastructure when the new administration takes office, we are also providing the opportunity for state and local governments to buy EV ARC™ products from the GSA Schedule with the Disaster Purchasing designation.”
Beam currently offers the EV ARC™ line of sustainable EV charging infrastructure products through their GSA MAS Contract under the following Special Item Numbers (SINs):
- SIN 335999 Power Distribution Equipment
- SIN 335911 Batteries
Federal agencies can use the company’s GSA MAS Contract to secure EV ARC™ sustainable EV charging products at pre-negotiated pricing, terms and conditions. These products include:
- Beam EV ARC™ charging units with ChargePoint™ EV Charging Station(s) Pre-mounted: Configurations with 1 plug, 2-plugs
- Beam EV ARC™ charging units with Enel X JuiceBox® Pro EV Charging Station(s) Pre-mounted: Configurations with 1 plug, 2 plugs, 3 plugs, 4 plugs, 5 plugs, 6 plugs
- The above products are also designated Disaster Purchasing status and are available for purchase by state and local government entities and educational institutions in accordance with Section 833 of the John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 and the Federal Supply Schedules Usage Act of 2010.
The U.S. government operates the largest civilian fleet in the world with more than 640,000 vehicles. As fleet electrification increases due to the resultant reduction in fuel costs, maintenance, and emissions, the requirement for rapid deployment of EV charging infrastructure is expected to grow dramatically. Additionally, President Elect Joe Biden has committed to the deployment of more than 500,000 new public charging outlets by the end of 2030 and to a 100% clean energy economy with net-zero emissions by 2050.
Beam Global’s GSA MAS Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 is valid through October 31, 2025 with exercise options through October 31, 2040.
