Envision Solar International Inc, a renewably energized EV charging, outdoor media and energy security products company, announced that it has received the largest single order in its history from New York City for its EV ARC™ products.
The order for thirty-two EV ARC™ units is valued at $2.14M and was made against a New York City Contract awarded to Envision Solar as a result of a competitive public bid and announced on May 18th of this year. The contract enables any city department to order EV ARC™ products as needed. This latest order has been made by the Department of Citywide Administrative Services and will provide EV ARC™ solar powered EV charging and emergency power to nine City Agencies. This order will be fulfilled starting this month and be completed by August of 2017.
"We are very happy that so many departments are taking advantage of the contract we have in place with New York City," said Desmond Wheatley, Envision CEO. "It's so encouraging to see the world's best known city driving EVs and charging them with renewable and secure energy from our US made products."
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space and generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The system's solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ which causes the array to follow the sun, generating up to 25% more electricity than a fixed array. The energy is stored in the EV ARC™ product's energy storage for charging day or night and to provide emergency power during a grid failure. Because the EV ARC™ product requires no trenching, foundations or installation work of any kind, it is deployed in minutes and can be moved to a new location with ease. EV ARC™ products are manufactured in the Company's San Diego facility by combat veterans, the disabled, minorities and other highly talented, mission driven team members.
