Envision Solar Delivers the First EV ARC™ Solar-Powered Charging Station to the Caribbean
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – (March 22, 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 patented EV ARC™ solar-powered charging station to the US Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.
The deployed EV ARC™ Transformer model was delivered in a fully assembled collapsed state in a standard shipping container. Upon arrival, using the Company’s patent-pending transformation technology, the EV ARC™ was returned to its upright position and ready to charge EVs within minutes. The EV ARC™ Transformer has the additional benefit of being able to be collapsed before and during severe weather events, such as hurricanes. The unit will continue to generate electricity in a collapsed state, but with a greatly reduced wind profile. Additionally, it will provide a highly robust and reliable source of energy during extreme conditions when the traditional grid may not be available. The EV ARC™ product was purchased by the Government of the US Virgin Islands and is the first autonomous solar-powered EV charging station in the region.
“The EV ARC will be used initially to support the electric vehicles in the Government’s fleet and is part of the Government’s plan to reduce emissions and fuel cost to the taxpayers in the Territory of United States Virgin Islands,” said Randolph Bennett, Commissioner of Property and Procurement of the US Virgin Islands Government.
“We have crossed another boundary with this successful deployment,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “EV ARC Transformer demonstrates that we can ship and deploy our products anywhere and this is a continuation of our strategy to expand geographically. The markets we target are global and we will continue to push to take advantage of the growth potential in the US and the rest of the world.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ product fits inside a standard parking space and does not reduce available parking. It generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 120 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.
