SAN DIEGO – December 10, 2019 – 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 that the City of Atlanta has issued a purchase order for the Company’s patented EV ARC™ product.
The City of Atlanta will use the EV ARC™ to charge its growing fleet of electric vehicles (EVs). The EV ARC™ can be deployed in minutes without difficult, expensive and disruptive trenching and construction. In addition, EV ARC™ will continue to charge EVs and supply emergency power to first responders during grid interruptions.
“Atlanta is a booming market for EVs and has aggressively supported EV charging infrastructure,” said Desmond Wheatley, Envision Solar’s CEO. “This will be our first deployment for the city and will add to our growing list of locations where people are driving on sunshine using our products. We look forward to deploying many more EV ARCs in Georgia.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the patented EV ARC™ and EV ARC™ HP products fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. The EV ARC™ product 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 1,100 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 percent 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, 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 highly talented, mission-driven team members, including combat veterans, individuals with disabilities and other underserved demographics.
