Google Gets Envision Solar EV ARC Charging Station
Envision Solar International has deployed one of its fully autonomous, mobile, solar powered EV ARC Electric Vehicle Charging stations to Google in Silicon Valley.
“EV ARC is a cost-effective, easy-to-install, stand-alone solar charging station that solves many of the problems faced by employers looking to provide electric vehicle charging stations for their employees. The charging station does not require a foundation, trenching, any building permits or grid connection and the batteries on board provide charging all day and night, added Envision.”
Desmond Wheatley, president and CEO of Envision Solar, stated:
“The EV ARC has received great reception throughout California by major employers and governments. Many of our customers are especially concerned about reducing their carbon footprint at all levels. They appreciate that Envision Solar’s product portfolio uniquely enables their employees and fleets to not only access the charging infrastructure they require, but also the opportunity to drive on sunshine – the best way to truly drive emission free. The EV ARC is a paradigm shifting technology that is very appealing to anyone who has faced significant challenges due to construction, trenching, permitting and grid connection.”
EV ARC generates approximately 16 kilowatt-hours per day. The juice is stored in a 22 kilowatt-hour on-board battery storage system.
“One of the main prerequisites to mass adoption of electric vehicles is having broadly dispersed and rapidly deployed charging stations. The EV ARC is ideal for any entity looking for rapid, hassle-free deployments of a charging infrastructure without all the challenges associated with conventional units. The fact that the energy is clean and renewable, unlike 75 percent of America’s grid supplied electricity, is important too. EV ARC makes EVs truly emissions free. It changes the deployment story and further advances us to a day when range anxiety is a thing of the past.”
