County of San Diego to deploy Envision’s grid-independent solar charging station

The latest customer for San Diego-based Envision Solar’s solar-powered, grid-independent charging stations is right in the company’s back yard. The County of San Diego plans to deploy an EV ARC charger at its Department of General Services to serve its electrified fleet vehicles.

The EV ARC fits inside a parking space without reducing available parking, and generates and stores enough solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The EV ARC’s batteries enable charging day or night, and can also provide emergency power during grid failure. The EV ARC requires no trenching, foundations or installation work, so it can be deployed in minutes and moved to a new location at will.

Envision Solar is targeting the local government market in a big way. The company has already sold units to the counties of Marin and Fresno, as well as cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Long Beach, Boulder and Sacramento.
