The systems were purchased using the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the federal procurement process and ensures best pricing.
“There are approximately 450,000 brownfield sites in the US where digging and construction are high risk or outright prohibited” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “These sites and the other 55,000 sites related to hazardous waste in the US are ideal locations for EV ARC off-grid, transportable EV charging solutions. Requiring no connection to the utility grid, Beam Global products are rapidly deployed with no construction, no electrical work and no spoils, making them ideal for any site with known or suspected hazardous materials.”
The solar-powered EV ARC electric vehicle charging systems are rapidly deployed with no digging, no construction and no electrical work. Off-grid and 100 percent solar powered, each EV ARC system generates and stores its own clean electricity and includes two chargers to charge two EVs simultaneously. The ARC Mobility trailer is specialised hydraulic transport equipment designed to rapidly relocate off-grid EV ARC systems with one-person operation.
According to the Hazardous Waste 2021 report published by InfrastructureReporCard.org under the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), there are an estimated 450,000 brownfield sites in the US
These are identified sites where redevelopment may be complicated by the presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. Additionally, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) universe includes over 45,000 facilities that generate large quantities of hazardous waste, 3,779 contaminated sites covering over 18 million acres (approximately the size of South Carolina) that are being cleaned up under the RCRA Corrective Action (CA) program, about 1,200 hazardous waste management facilities, and approximately 8,000 hazardous waste recycling facilities. The risk or outright prohibition of construction that includes digging precludes the installation of in-ground charging. As these sites strive toward cleaner energy sources and fleet electrification, they need options for off-grid renewably powered EV charging solutions.
