California State University Deploys EV ARC™ Transportable Solar-Powered EV Chargers
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – (May 17, 2016) – Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewable energy, media and branding and EV charging product company, announced today that the Company has successfully deployed the first of its patented EV ARC™ products for the California State University System.
The deployed EV ARC™ models will be used to exclusively power Cal State East Bay’s All Green Fleet. The university’s purchases of EV ARC™ units were made as part of the California State Contract awarded to Envision Solar in 2015. Cal State East Bay is the first university in California to deploy transportable solar-powered EV charging stations.
“Providing a fleet of electrical vehicles for our University departments to use around campus is an important part of our sustainability efforts,” said Derrick Lobo, Manager of Parking and Transportation Services at California State University, East Bay. “Envision’s EV ARCs enable us to dynamically scale our charging needs and most importantly to ensure that our electric vehicles are 100 percent emissions free! The speed and ease of the environmental impact-free installation was also a big benefit for us, and saved us a lot of time and financial resources that would have been spent on bringing electrical power to our desired location.”
“We are proud that EV ARC has again been selected by a California agency, because of its inherent environmental and deployment benefits,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “The Cal State University system is helping to ensure a sustainable future with their choice of electric vehicles and our solar-powered EV charging products. We are delighted to have them as customers.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ product fits inside a parking space and does not reduce available parking in any way. It generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 150 miles of EV driving each day. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by the patented EnvisionTrak™ system, which causes the array to follow the sun, generating 18 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. 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, the disabled, minorities and other highly talented, mission-driven team members.
