SAN DIEGO, CALIF. – May 8, 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 that its EV ARC™ product will be on display at the California State Capitol 3rd Annual AltCar Fleet Conference on Wednesday, May 9th. The event is in partnership with California’s Department of General Services (DGS), California Government Operations Agency, Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition, California Air Resources Board and Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District.
Since being awarded the California State Contract #1-15-61-16, Envision Solar has delivered EV ARC™ units to Caltrans, California Department of General Services, the California State University System, California State Parks, Office of Inspector General and other governmental organizations in the U.S. and overseas with many of these sales being repeat orders. The conference will be an opportunity for other state organizations and the general public to become exposed to the world’s only transportable solar-powered EV charging solution. The EV ARC™ unit is equipped with a digital advertising screen that will showcase the company’s outdoor advertising option which can be used as an alternative revenue source. In November of 2017, the Company announced a partnership with OUTFRONT Media (NYSE: OUT), one of the largest out-of-home media companies in North America to deploy solar-powered EV charging networks.
“As we continue to grow our government business, we are excited that our EV ARC™ product is being showcased at this iconic location,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. “The State of California is currently our second largest customer and continues to represent a very large opportunity for our company as we grow our business in government and enterprise across the U.S. and internationally.”
Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed an executive order in January to boost the supply of zero-emission vehicles and charging and refueling stations in California. The Governor also detailed the new plan for investing $1.25 billion in cap-and-trade auction proceeds to reduce carbon pollution and improve public health and the environment.
Governor Brown’s Executive Order, EO 1/26/2018: “It is further ordered that all State entities work with the private sector and all appropriate levels of government to spur the construction and installation of 250,000 zero-emission vehicle chargers, including 10,000 direct current fast chargers, buy 2025.”
“This executive order aims to curb carbon pollution from cars and trucks and boost the number of zero-emission vehicles driven in California,” said Governor Brown. “In addition, the cap-and-trade investments will, in varying degrees, reduce California’s carbon footprint and improve the quality of life for all.”
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.
