The system was purchased through the California Contract #1-18-61-16 which simplifies the procurement process and ensures best pricing. The system fits into a standard parking space, without reducing available parking, and is equipped with three Enel X JuiceBox Pro EV charging stations. The system generates and stores its own clean electricity and delivers that electricity to power EVs, day or night, and during inclement weather and power outages. The transportable but permanent unit includes the Emergency Power Panel option for first responder use during blackouts or in locations where there is no utility connection available.

Requiring no connection to the utility grid, Beam Global products eliminate disruptive construction projects, costly electric circuit upgrades and utility charges to deliver significant long-term savings to County budgets. Because there is no grid connection, EV charging systems are rapidly deployed, readily relocated and can be placed in locations where they are needed most.

“Energy resiliency is fast becoming a critical consideration for EV charging infrastructure in the wake of extreme weather, related power outages or shutdowns, and increasing strain on the US electric grid” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “The County of San Luis Obispo joins over 100 forward-thinking municipalities and organizations in proactively planning ahead by deploying off-grid, renewably powered EV ARC EV charging systems. We note that federal, state and local governments are putting increasing emphasis on resilient EV charging as electricity becomes vital fuel for their fleet vehicles.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom has stated that California needs 1.2 million public and shared EV chargers by 2030 and on September 23, the Governor signed a new climate bill that included $4 billion in funding for EV charging infrastructure.
