Two of California’s state parks have received new public charging infrastructure that offers electric vehicle owners the ability to charge up on solar power.
Envision Solar International yesterday said it delivered its EV ARC solar-powered charging stations to two parks under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Parks and Recreation. The EV ARC stations are now available at the Granite Bay Main Beach in central California and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in Southern California. The company previously installed EV ARC stations for public charging at the Natural Bridges States Park in Santa Cruz, Calif.
Envision solar said the new installations are in remote areas, and the chargers include battery storage so that they can operate at night. The station generates enough electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day.
“The California Department of Parks and Recreation is using our products to cost-effectively deliver EV charging in locations that might otherwise never have been able to offer that service,” Envision Solar CEO, Desmond Wheatley, said in a statement. “We are delighted to continue to expand our business with them and look forward to enabling more clean, green and impact-free charging infrastructure for them in the future.”
According to the company’s latest SEC filing, Envision Solar during the first quarter delivered 42 EV ARC units for locations in New York City, Pittsburgh, Pa., and Oakland, Calif.
