Envision Solar International, a provider of energized EV charging solutions, announced it has delivered EV ARC products to the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
The EV ARC products are providing workplace charging at the agency’s Bay Area District Office and public charging for park visitors at Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz.
The EV ARC products will allow park users, employees, and fleet vehicles to plug in and drive on sunshine in remote locations and/or where circuit deficiencies exist.
With over 340 miles of coastline, 970 miles of lake and river frontage, 15,000 campsites, and 4,500 miles of trails, the State Park System provides wonderful recreational, educational, and inspirational opportunities for over 67 million visitors a year.
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, according to company officials. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak which causes the array to follow the sun, generating up to 25 percent 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 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, the company claims.
