The unit will be available as a campus amenity to students, faculty, staff and visitors, enabling them to charge electric vehicles for free, thereby helping the college to save on construction costs and utility bills. The unit’s integrated battery storage allows EV drivers to charge day, night and during inclement weather, and enables the unit to serve as an energy resiliency asset in the event of a campus power outage.
Given that no on-site construction activity is required, the EV ARC is absolutely suitable for deployment during the current Covid-19 lockdown. A single Company representative delivers the product, requiring zero contact with campus personnel, then conducts a sanitisation process to any human interface surfaces. Photographs, the sanitation checklist and delivery documentation are sent electronically to the customer and the unit is then available for use immediately without any need for person to person interaction.
“We are doing everything we can to support our customers during COVID” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO at Envision Solar. “Our ability to continue delivering vital fueling and emergency power infrastructure to New York at this tragic time is the best way we can support these fellow Americans who have, so far, received the worst impact of the virus. Our hearts go out to all those in New York and elsewhere as they struggle through the crisis.”
