The repeat purchase was made through the General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the federal procurement process and ensures best pricing, and can be used by many state and local government entities for disaster recovery or preparedness purposes.

The Beam EV ARC systems are off-grid and powered 100 percent by renewable energy, generating and storing their own clean electricity. Each system is deployed with no construction, no electrical work, no utility connection and is delivered as a turnkey sustainable charging solution, saving the County time and the cost of lengthy construction projects. The Emergency Power Panel can offer first responders a source of vital electricity in emergencies or disasters and the systems are flood resistant to 9.5’ and wind-rated to 160 mph for disaster preparedness.

The public parks that now offer the solar-powered charging systems to visitors include:

Heise County Park

Lake Morena County Park

Tijuana River Valley Regional Park

William Heise County Park

“More municipalities, counties and state level agencies across the US are expanding their purchases of EV ARC systems beyond fleet charging to also provide public charging” said Desmond Wheatley, Beam Global CEO. “Parks, open spaces, recreational areas and environmentally sensitive locations are perfect sites for EV ARC systems which are rapidly deployed without digging up parks, closing public facilities for construction or disrupting the environment. EV drivers can park, plug in, play, and have the range they need to get home, driving on sunshine. The EV ARC also provides power for other uses in those locations which is useful all the time and vital during emergencies.”

Disaster preparedness and energy resiliency are becoming imperative for government entities as the intensity and frequency of climate-related emergencies are on the rise, disrupting communities, businesses and the governments that serve them. According to Climate Central US data analysis, about 83 percent of reported power outages from 2000-2021 can be attributed to weather-related events, with the most recent decade from 2011-2021 experiencing 64 percent more major power outages than the previous decade, with an estimated $150B-$200B in costs to US business every year.

GSA’s Disaster Purchasing Programme expands purchasing beyond federal agencies and allows state and local governments to buy directly from GSA Schedules to facilitate disaster preparation, response or major disaster recovery.

The next generation Beam products can be purchased by local, state and federal agencies off the back of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 which simplifies the procurement process and ensures best pricing.
