Envision Solar International Inc announced that the New York New Jersey Port Authority has issued a purchase order for two of the company’s new and patented EV ARC 2020 units. The order is part of its Clean Vehicle Program, which includes an interim target of 35% reduction in greenhouse gasses by 2025, and a long-term goal of 80% reduction by 2050. The Port Authority of New York/New Jersey will use the EV ARC 2020 units to charge its growing fleet of electric vehicles. The new EV ARC2020 is flood-proof to 9.5 feet. In the event of flooding caused by rising sea levels and/or weather events such as those experienced during hurricane Sandy, the EV AR 2020 will continue to provide EV charging and an emergency source of power through its emergency power panel even if water levels reach nine feet above street level. This unique capability will greatly enhance the Port Authority’s preparedness in the event of an emergency, particularly an event which causes a blackout or other grid interruption.

The EV ARC 2020 can be deployed in minutes without difficult and disruptive trenching and construction, which in port environments can be otherwise prohibitive. In addition, the solar energy used to charge fleet vehicles will enhance the Port’s carbon reduction initiatives.
