Beam Global receives multiple orders from correctional facilities for EV ARC

Beam Global has announced that several orders for EV ARC off-grid EV charging systems have been placed by correctional facilities on the east and west coasts of the US.

The systems were purchased through the California Department of General Services (DGS) contract #1-22-61-16, which allows state, local and municipal government entities in California and other U.S. states, to purchase Beam products at the California negotiated price, without having to go through a lengthy procurement or technology review process.

“This is another excellent example of the unique and valuable attributes our rapidly deployed, low touch, infrastructure products bring to the EV charging space” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Corrections facilities can get the charger of their choice without disruptive construction and electrical projects which introduce significant security risk and can be outright prohibited. Our ability to have a single person deliver operational EV charging in minutes instead of months means that correctional officers do not need to security-clear multiple-member construction teams or manage security during lengthy projects. Any secure environment offers an excellent opportunity for further EV ARC deployments. I’m delighted that we have so many dynamic government contracts in place to make purchasing EV ARCs as easy as deploying them.”

Government and private fleets are moving to electric vehicles which are less expensive to operate and maintain, and help achieve often mandated, zero-emission targets. Sites with physical security concerns like correctional facilities - both public and private - need EV charging infrastructure without the risk that traditional installation projects introduce.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Census of State and Federal Adult Correctional Facilities, there are 4,527 federal, state and local correctional facilities in the US., both public and private. Beam Global anticipates that all such facilities will require EV charging particularly where mandates such as the federal government’s requirement that all light duty vehicles be zero emissions by 2027 are in force.

Onsite demand for EV chargers to support new fleet EVs, employee workplace charging and visitor charging is on the rise. The solar-powered EV ARC electric vehicle charging systems are rapidly deployed with no digging, no construction, no electrical work and none of the teams generally required to perform those tasks. Off-grid and 100 percent solar-powered, each EV ARC system generates and stores its own clean electricity and can include up to six chargers to charge six EVs simultaneously.
