Envision Solar Announces Follow-On Order of Additional EV ARC™ Solar Charging Station from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
SAN DIEGO, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 that Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will deploy an additional EV ARC™ unit to provide emissions-free EV charging for its fleet vehicles. The laboratory deployed two EV ARC™ units in October of 2017 which have proven successful in reducing their fleet’s carbon emissions.
“We are excited about the opportunity to convert some of our fleet of government vehicles to electric and the Envision Solar product will be instrumental in giving us a portable Level II charging platform in locations that are not practical to be hard-wired,” said Stu Jossey, a manager of fleet services at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. “Our employees are very eager to take advantage of this solar charging opportunity at locations across our facility.”
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is in the process of transitioning 30% of their fleet to zero-emissions vehicles (ZEVs). The EV ARC™ product’s ease of deployment and environmental impact-free installation coupled with the truly emissions-free driving it delivers were major factors in the laboratory’s decision to select the EV ARC™ over grid-tied options.
“We are honored that the highly prestigious Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has again selected the EV ARC to charge their fleet vehicles,” said Envision Solar CEO Desmond Wheatley. “We are looking forward to enabling the driving on sunshine experience for their entire fleet and employees and visitors too.”
In many locations fleet vehicles are electrifying faster than the general driving public. So far this year, the mayors of LA, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle have partnered on a Request for Information for 24,000 electric fleet vehicles and 30 other major cities are seeking the same information. According to Bloomberg, the landmark EV order has an estimated price of $10 billion. Envision Solar views fleets as a major opportunity and is currently supplying New York and many other cities.
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space without reducing available parking and generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ which causes the array to follow the sun, generating up 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, and to provide emergency power during grid failure. The EV ARC™ product is a permanent solution but because it 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, individuals with disabilities, and other minority demographics and highly talented, mission-driven team members.
