Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar," or the "Company"), the leading renewable energy Media and Branding, and EV Charging Product company, recently announced that it received orders for its EV ARC™ from the US Virgin Islands. The EV ARC™ product will be used in St. Thomas where it will provide EV charging which is both sustainable and immune to utility grid interruptions. The EV ARC™ product will also act as an emergency source of power during black outs.
"We invented the EV ARC to solve problems," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. "This deployment in the US Virgin Islands really shows that our transportable solar powered EV charger and energy storage unit has uses that go way beyond simply reducing a power bill. We see island communities as another significant opportunity for growth."
The Virgin Islands is pursuing a combination of renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives and intends a 60% reduction in its fossil fuel consumption by 2025. Electric Vehicles powered by solar energy will play a crucial role in this reduction.
"Sustainability, the environment and the safety of our citizens and visitors are all very important to us," said Elmo Roebuck, Jr., Director of the Virgin Islands Energy Office. "Finding this unique product which provides for all three is very exciting. Solar powered EV driving and the increased energy security delivered by the EV ARC make it the ideal solution for our needs. The fact that it causes no environmental impact and can be moved around makes it a no brainer."
