Envision Solar Opens New International Market with First Canadian Order
SAN DIEGO, CA – May 21, 2020 — Envision Solar International, Inc., (Nasdaq: EVSI, EVSIW) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading producer of unique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security and outdoor media today announced the first Canadian order for the Company’s EV ARC™ solar-powered charging infrastructure product, expanding global reach. EV ARC™ units are already deployed in the U.S., Brazil, Spain and The Caribbean.
“Canada is the 10th fastest electric vehicle adopter in the world and is poised for continued growth,” said Envision Solar’s CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “Uniquely, our products work anywhere they have access to the sky and this first Canadian order is consistent with our global growth plan.”
The Canadian government launched a 3-year, C$300 million EV rebate program one year ago, in May 2019. The first-come-first-served fund was nearly half depleted only 8 months into the program. Transport Canada noted that more than $134 million in rebates had been issued to 33,000 Canadians by January 2020. In 2019, EV sales made up 3% of Canadian vehicle sales, a year-over-year increase of 50%. Goals set last year have electric cars at 10% of all light-duty vehicle sales by 2025 and 30% by 2030.
