Envision Solar earns European patent for EV ARC portable solar charging station

San Diego-based Envision Solar has announced that the European Patent Office has approved a patent for the company’s EV ARC product line.

Envision recently announced the issuance of a Chinese patent for its EV ARC product and a US patent for its Transformer ARC product. The company’s EV-Standard and UAV ARC are in advanced stages of development, and patents are pending.

The EV ARC and EV ARC HP are portable solar-powered charging stations that fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. According to Envision, the EV ARC generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day, while the EV ARC HP DC fast charging system can power up to 1,100 miles per day.

EV ARC products feature on-board energy storage. Because they require no trenching, foundations or installation work of any kind, they can be deployed in minutes and can be easily moved to new locations.

“Our core US business is going from strength to strength and we fully intend to take advantage of what we believe are meaningful international opportunities,” said CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Our patented EV ARC is now covered in China and Europe – two of the fastest growing markets for EVs in the world. I’m confident that EV-Standard, UAV ARC and our other developing products will enjoy equal success.”

    Well I hope they don’t think they can patent it in the US as I’ve been talking about these for yrs so lots of prior art.

    All EVs powered by solar is the wave of the future. Why get round any other way? Sun to electrons to electric motors is by far the best method of producing locomotion of any form.
