Envision Solar EV ARC Charging Stations Embraced by Silicon Valley Search Engine
Cleantech San Diego member Envision Solar, the leading renewable energy Media and Branding product company, will be supplying the next order of 20 EV ARC™ charging stations to a major Silicon Valley search engine.
The EV ARC™ is a cost-effective, easy-to-install, standalone solar powered electric vehicle charging station that solves many of the problems faced by employers looking to provide workplace charging. It does not require a foundation, trenching, building permits or grid connection and the batteries on board provide emission free charging all during the day or night.
“The EV ARC™ has received a brilliant reception throughout Silicon Valley, where Envision Solar’s products are providing the clean energy charging infrastructure employees require, as well as the opportunity to drive on sunshine,” said Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar. “We are pleased to continue our relationship with this world-renowned customer. Their facilities team rigorously tested the first two EV ARC™ units purchased. After months of testing, they found the EV ARC™ to exceed expectations and as a result, placed this latest and more significant order. I look forward to continuing our work with them to provide the workplace charging infrastructure needed at their many other campus locations.”
Wheatley said these EV ARC™ units will be manufactured in Q4 at Envision Solar’s new headquarters and manufacturing facility in San Diego, California, providing for new green jobs and making a significant economic contribution to the local community.
The past year has seen a major uptick in deployments of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). This acceleration is a direct result of developments in the market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). Frost and Sullivan forecasts that EV charging infrastructure deployments will grow at a 128% CAGR over the next five years. Solar powered charging offers the cleanest and easiest method for the deployment of such infrastructure particularly in cities and remote locations.
