SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – March 5, 2019 – Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading producer ofunique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security and outdoor media, announced that Washington State Parks will deploy its EV ARC™ products to provide emissions-free EV charging. The units will be placed at Gingko Petrified Forest State Park, off Interstate 90, the park offers a unique geology museum and interpretive trails for visitors.
Washington State Parks recently purchased two EV ARC™ products because of their ease of installation and the 100% emissions-free driving delivered by the units using clean solar energy. The EV ARC™ units will align perfectly with the department’s sustainability plan, which includes switching to renewable energy sources over time. The Gingko location is in an area where limited charging opportunities for motorists exist. The units will allow park users to plug in and drive on sunshine. The agency also appreciates the freedom to move EV ARC™ stations when necessary to optimize usage.
“We are happy that Washington State Parks is joining the growing list of agencies who recognize the benefits of driving on sunshine with our EV ARCs,” said Envision Solar CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to enabling more clean, green, impact-free charging infrastructure for them in the future.”
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission manages more than 100 state parks, including long-distance trails, marine parks and heritage areas. State Parks provides recreation, stewardship and interpretive and educational opportunities to visitors. As the number of EVs on US roads grows there will be an increasing requirement for the unique benefits offered by the EV ARC™ off-grid charging solution in these locations. Envision Solar considers Parks and Recreation agencies in Washington and across the US as likely areas of continued future growth.
Invented and manufactured in California, the patented EV ARC™ and EV ARC™ HP products fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. EV ARC™ generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. EV ARC™ HP DC fast charging systems provide up to 1100 miles per day. The EV ARC™ system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ (patented) which causes the solar 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 on-board energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide EV charging and emergency power during grid failure. The EV ARC™ product is a permanent solution that provides Level I, Level II and DC Fast Charging 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.
