New York State Successfully Deploys Envision Solar’s EV ARC™ at Nature Preserve in Greater Buffalo Area
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – May 2nd, 2017 – Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading renewably energized EV charging, outdoor media and energy security products company, announced today that they have successfully deployed one of their EV ARC™ solar electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve in the Greater Buffalo Area.
“Together with our partners, we’re making it easier for drivers in western New York to use sunshine for fuel with the installation of a new solar carport,” said DEC Regional Director Abby Snyder. “The station provides us with a way to use the sun to fuel an electric vehicle without connecting to the energy grid, helping us lead by example and engaging our visitors to explore how our transportation needs can be met with clean energy.”
The EV ARC™ will serve multiple purposes for both employees and visitors of the Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve. In addition to providing solar powered charging for electric vehicles, it also sports a state of the art digital video screen which will provide information on the station’s performance and highlight upcoming events. It is also being utilized to charge Reinstein Woods’ neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV), an electric scooter and comes equipped with USB and AC outlets for visitors to charge other electronic devices.
“We are delighted to see New York State get so much value from the EV ARC by charging NEVs and EVs from nothing but sunshine and providing USB and 120v outlets for other charging and emergency power needs,” said Envision Solar CEO Desmond Wheatley. “The digital information screen rounds out a fantastic value proposition and ensures that visitors and staff in the park get the most robust solution the industry has to offer.”
“I am thrilled to see the installation of solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve,” added New York State Assemblymember Monica Wallace. “Families from across Western New York have long enjoyed having Reinstein Woods as a place to spend an afternoon to observe and learn more about the environment right here in our community. This new feature will go a long way to attracting more families to visit this beautiful nature preserve and learn more about how we can protect and preserve our environment.”
“We want to help people realize that electric cars are the future, but that doesn’t mean that travel has to be limited,” said Reinstein Woods Center Director Meaghan Boice-Green. “Innovations like this charging station demonstrates how solar power can be harnessed anywhere.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space and does not reduce available parking in any way. It generates and stores enough clean, solar electricity to charge up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The energy is stored in the EV ARC™ product’s energy storage for charging day or night or for use by first responders or others during grid outages. 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.
