Envision Solar deploys EV charging stations in Silicon Valley

Solar energy product designer Envision Solar International Inc. has deployed its fully autonomous, mobile and solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations, known as EV Arc, to an Internet search engine customer in Silicon Valley, according to a release.

The EV Arc is described as a cost-effective, easy-to-install, standalone solar charging station that can overcome certain problems faced by employers looking to provide electric vehicle charging stations for their employees. According to Envision, it does not require a foundation, trenching, or any building permits to install. It also does not need a grid connection. Its on-board batteries provide charging day and night.

"The EV Arc has received great reception throughout California by major employers and governments," Desmond Wheatley, president and CEO of Envision Solar, said. "Many of our customers are especially concerned about reducing their carbon footprint at all levels.

He called the EV Arc "a paradigm shifting technology" that is appealing to anyone who faces challenges with trenching, permitting and grid connection.

The product was designed in the United States, and is built to fit inside a standard parking space and generate approximately 16 kilowatt-hours of electricity per day. The energy is stored and ready for use in the 22 kilowatt-hour on-board battery storage.

"One of the main prerequisites to mass adoption of electric vehicles is having broadly dispersed and rapidly deployed charging stations," Wheatley said. "The EV Arc is ideal for any entity looking for rapid, hassle-free deployments of a charging infrastructure without all the challenges associated with conventional units."

The Silicon Valley customer was not identified by name.
