Besides being available to charge the City’s two electric fleet vehicles, the EV ARC system will also serve its emergency preparedness and energy resiliency programmes. The EV ARC is equipped with a ChargePoint Dual Port charger and an emergency power panel and generates and stores its own electricity, delivering that power for EVs and first responders, day or night, and during inclement weather and power outages.

“The City of Walla Walla is excited to add the EV ARC solar-powered charging station as part of the City’s Fleet Electrification and Emergency Preparedness programmes to fuel our fleet vehicles with emissions free off-grid energy” said Matt Edwards, Fleet Operations Manager for the City of Walla Walla. “The systems have the added capability to power a variety of essential functions in the event of an emergency and power grid disruptions. We needed a solution located at the City Service Center to support both of these important programs, and with the ability to relocate the EV ARC when needed, this was the perfect option for the City’s overall readiness.”

Requiring no connection to the utility grid, Beam Global systems eliminate disruptive construction projects, costly electrical work and utility charges to deliver significant long-term savings to city budgets.

The company is steadily expanding its municipal customer base as cities transition from gasoline and diesel vehicles to reduce costs and carbon footprint and to comply with the increasing number of mandates which are in place across the US to reduce transportation pollution.
