Envision Solar Announces First Sale of Solar-Powered EV Chargers in the Caribbean
Government of the Virgin Islands of the US Orders EV ARC™ Solar Powered EV Charger
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. March 5, 2015 – 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 it recently received orders for its EV ARC™ from the US Virgin Islands. The EV ARC™ product will be used in St. Thomas where it will provide EV charging which is both sustainable and immune to utility grid interruptions. The EV ARC™ product will also act as an emergency source of power during blackouts.
“We invented the EV ARC to solve problems,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “This deployment in the US Virgin Islands really shows that our transportable solar-powered EV charger and energy storage unit has uses that go way beyond simply reducing a power bill. We see island communities as another significant opportunity for growth.”
The Virgin Islands is pursuing a combination of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives and intends a 60% reduction in its fossil fuel consumption by 2025. Electric Vehicles powered by solar energy will play a crucial role in this reduction.
“Sustainability, the environment and the safety of our citizens and visitors are all very important to us,” said Elmo Roebuck, Jr., Director of the Virgin Islands Energy Office. “Finding this unique product which provides for all three is very exciting. Solar powered EV driving and the increased energy security delivered by the EV ARC make it the ideal solution for our needs. The fact that it causes no environmental impact and can be moved around makes it a no brainer.”
EV ARC™ products are fully transportable and deployed in minutes without any impact to the location. They produce enough solar power each day for up to 150 miles of electric driving and store 28kWh of energy for charging at night or to be used in times of utility grid failure.
