Envision Solar and General Motors – November 16 ribbon cutting for Solar Tree® installation at GM’s Warren, Michigan facility

SAN DIEGO (November 16, 2011) – Envision Solar International, Inc., ( (OTC BB: EVSI.obNEWS), a leading sustainable infrastructure product designer and developer will be participating in a ribbon cutting of a new Solar Tree® structure installation at General Motor’s Warren, Michigan facility on Wednesday, November 16 at 9 AM. The installation consists of Envision’s Solar Tree® structure which will shade and charge six electric vehicles while providing renewable, solar electric energy to GM’s facility.

The deployment includes Solar Tree® structures which incorporate Envision’s CleanCharge™ CI™, “column-integrated” electric vehicle charging stations. The Solar Tree® structures also incorporate Envision’s EnvisionTrak™ multi-axis solar tracking technology which should increase the efficiency of the installation by as much as 25%. Envision Solar has recently released its new proprietary and patent pending EnvisionTrak™ technology and has installations in multiple markets across the USA.

Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar stated: “This ribbon cutting event is a proud moment for our company. GM selected us because of the uniqueness and high quality of our products and the paradigm shifting nature of our approach to the EV charging market. Our Solar Tree® structures can be installed in any location while our unique tracking solution allows us to always get the most from the sun. As such they are the perfect visible embodiment of GM and its dealerships commitment to the environment and the future of electric and other highly efficient vehicles. We look forward to installing many more of our iconic tracking Solar Tree® structures for GM in the coming months.”

Rob Threlkeld, GM Global Manager of Renewable Energy said: “GM’s decision to use Envision Solar’s Solar Tree® structure dovetails with our larger environmental commitment to reduce our environmental impact. By continuing to find ways to utilize advanced technologies for the greater good, we are hopeful that these trends will soon become commonplace.”
