Envision Solar International, Inc., the leading renewable energy, media and branding and EV charging product company, announced today that the State of California has re-awarded the Company contract #1-15-61-16 to supply EV ARC™ products to State of California Departments and other state and local governmental agencies or entities. The contract was originally awarded on June 12, 2015 for a one-year term with two one-year renewal options. The State of California has elected to exercise its option to renew the contract for the second year.
Under the contract, Envision Solar has successfully delivered multiple EV ARC™ units to Caltrans, The Department of General Services, The Office of the Governor General and the State University System. Envision is currently fulfilling a purchase order against the contract to deliver more EV ARC™ systems to Caltrans.
California leads the US in the deployment of electric vehicles. Governor Brown has committed to having more than 1.5M EVs on the road in California by 2025 and the State continues to work to ensure that there will be sufficient EV charging infrastructure in place to support that goal.
"California is an important customer for our growing company," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. "Having completed several deliveries of our product in the first year of the contract, we view this renewal as a resounding endorsement by one of the most discerning customers we could hope to have. We look forward to many more successful order fulfillments."
Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ product fits inside a parking space and does not reduce available parking in any way. It generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 150 miles of EV driving each day. The system's solar electrical generation is enhanced by the patented EnvisionTrak™ system, which causes the array to follow the sun, generating 18 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. 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.
