City of Pittsburgh Selects Envision Solar EV Arc Solar Charging Station for its Fleet of EVs

The City of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania has 10 EVs today and intends to increase that number going forward. As part of the City’s ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint and provide clean and reliable power, it intends to transition to 100% renewable energy including wind and solar by 2035. The contract awarded to Envision came as a result of a competitive RFP process.

“In Pittsburgh we are working to achieve long-term environmental health through wise stewardship, improved use of our resources and reducing our carbon footprint. Adding the Envision Solar EV ARC emissions-free charging station to the electric vehicle fleet is one more step on our journey towards making Pittsburgh 100% renewable.” – Mayor William Peduto

“Pittsburgh is the latest city to recognize the benefits of driving on sunshine with our EV ARCs,” said Envision Solar CEO Desmond Wheatley. “We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to enabling much more clean, green, impact free charging infrastructure for them in the future.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 19,354 cities and towns in the United States. Envision Solar considers the municipal market to be an important area of focus for our sales team. The Company has deployed EV ARC™ products for New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Boulder, Sacramento, Santa Monica, Santa Cruz, Indio, Maywood, and others. The Company is currently fulfilling orders for New York City, the City of Oakland and others. The Company’s municipal pipeline is expanding.

Invented and manufactured in California, the 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. The system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ which causes the array to follow the sun, generating up to 25% 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.  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.
