SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – May 31, 2018 – 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 the successful delivery of the EV ARC™ product to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
EV ARC™ products are ideally suited for secure locations because they require no construction which means that, except for Envision’s delivery driver, no other personnel require access to the location to facilitate the installation. This reduces background checks and other administrative processes needed for secure facilities. Choosing EV ARC™ products also reduces risk and the associated costs, when compared to typical grid-tied EV chargers, which are the result of construction/electrical projects at secure facilities.
“The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is yet another great California agency to recognize the benefits of ease of installation with our EV ARCs,” said Envision Solar CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to enabling more secure deployments of electric vehicle charging infrastructure for them in the future.”
With 85 facilities, the California Corrections and Rehabilitation System provides secure incarceration for offenders, effective parole supervision, and rehabilitative strategies to successfully reintegrate offenders into our communities. As the State of California continues its drive to electrify fleet vehicles, there will be an increasing requirement for the unique benefits offered by the EV ARC™ because of its easy and fast deployment in all locations especially those with security issues. Envision Solar considers Corrections and Rehabilitation agencies in California and across the U.S. as likely areas of continued future growth.
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space 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. Because the EV ARC™ product 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.
