Envision Solar and ChargePoint Announce an International Partnership to Offer Solar-Powered EV Charging Anywhere
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (Aug. 20, 2015) – Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewable energy, media and branding and EV charging product company and ChargePoint, the world’s largest EV charging network, are pleased to announce a new partnership agreement.
The agreement covers the US and Canada and will enable both companies to offer ChargePoint chargers on Envision Solar’s solar-powered EV charging products. ChargePoint’s rapidly growing customer base will be able to access EV charging in locations where it is too difficult or expensive to install utility grid-tied units. The EVs charged on ChargePoint and Envision’s combined products will be truly emissions-free and their owners will enjoy the fun and environmentally excellent experience of driving on sunshine.
“ChargePoint is thrilled to be working with Envision Solar to bring this new product to our customers. With the EV ARC™, Envision Solar is helping ChargePoint and the rest of the industry continue the growth of electric vehicles,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint. “Businesses can reduce their costs while giving their employees and customers a clean way to charge their cars.”
“The combination of the EV ARC™ and the ChargePoint network is very powerful,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “Together we are providing no hassle deployments in minutes, driving on sunshine and the largest EV charging network in the world. We see this as a great opportunity to expand both businesses.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ 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. The EV ARC™ requires no trenching, foundations or installation work, allowing it to be deployed in minutes and moved to a new location with ease.
Envision Solar’s EV ARC™ products are manufactured in the company’s San Diego facility, by combat veterans, minorities, workers with disabilities and other highly talented and mission-driven team members.
