The city’s first units were deployed at their Fleet Services Bureau to provide emissions free EV charging and emergency power in July 2018. The units were chosen because of their ease of installation and scalability for a growing fleet of electric vehicles, providing a highly visible demonstration of commitment to environmental protection. The EV ARC units will deliver true zero-emissions EV charging without environmental impact, the need for permitting, construction or a utility connection or resultant bill.
As EVs become more widely adopted, the ability to add distributed, transportable, solar-powered chargers without planning, construction or grid upgrades makes the EV ARC product the ideal solution for cities managing growing EV charging demand.
“This city is the latest municipality to place a follow-on order after having had great success driving on sunshine with our EV ARCs” said Desmond Wheatley, Envision Solar’s CEO. “Los Angeles County’s recent history of environmental awareness and the exponential growth of EV adoption make municipalities the perfect location for the EV ARC. We are always delighted to receive repeat orders because we view them as strong validations of our products and business model. We are looking forward to many more.”
Invented and manufactured in California, the patented EV ARC and EV ARC HP products fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak which causes the solar array to follow the sun, generating up to 25 percent more electricity than a fixed array. The energy is stored in the unit’s on-board energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide EV charging and emergency power during grid failure.
