California Department of Parks and Recreation Selects Envision Solar EV ARC™ Solar Charging Stations
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – February 27, 2018 – Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewably energized EV charging, outdoor media and energy security products company, announced that the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation will deploy its EV ARC™ products to provide emissions-free EV charging. The first EV ARC™ products will provide workplace charging at the agency’s Bay Area District Office and public charging for park visitors at Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz.
The California Department of Parks and Recreation chose EV ARC™ products because of their ease of installation and the 100% emissions-free driving delivered by the units using clean solar energy. The EV ARC™ units will align perfectly with the department’s mission by helping to preserve the state’s extraordinary biological diversity, protecting its most valued natural and cultural resources, and creating opportunities for high-quality outdoor recreation. The unit will allow park users, employees, and fleet vehicles to plug in and drive on sunshine in remote locations and/or where circuit deficiencies exist. The agency also appreciates the freedom to move EV ARC™ EV chargers when necessary to optimize usage.
“The California Department of Parks and Recreation is the latest agency to recognize the benefits of driving on sunshine with our EV ARCs,” said Envision Solar CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to enabling cleaner, green, impact-free charging infrastructure for them in the future.”
With over 340 miles of coastline, 970 miles of lake and river frontage, 15,000 campsites, and 4,500 miles of trails, the State Park System provides wonderful recreational, educational, and inspirational opportunities for over 67 million visitors a year. As the number of EVs on California’s roads grows, there will be an increasing requirement for the unique benefits offered by the EV ARC™ off-grid charging solution in these remote locations. Envision Solar considers Parks and Recreation agencies in California and across the US as likely areas of significant future growth.
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space and generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ which causes the 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 energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide emergency power during grid failure. Because the EV ARC™ product 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.
