City of Lompoc, CA Deploys Beam Global EV ARC™ Off-Grid EV

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 15 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, outdoor media and energy security, announced that the city of Lompoc in California has deployed two EV ARC™ solar-powered EV charging systems available for public use. The systems were partially funded by the Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District’s Clean Air Grants for Infrastructure program and were purchased through California contract #1-18-61-16, simplifying the process of supply and guarantees the best price.

The city’s EV ARC™ systems are located in the Lompoc Valley Medical Center (LVMC) parking lot, located at 1515 East Ocean Ave, and fit into a standard parking space without reducing available parking. Each system has two charging outlets to provide public access to charge up to four electric vehicles. Each EV ARC™ system generates and stores its own clean electricity and provides that electricity to power electric vehicles, day and night, and during inclement weather and power outages. Transportable but permanent units include the option of an emergency power panel for first responders during network outages and shutdowns.

“By offering off-grid high-tech solutions for electric vehicle charging like the EV ARC, cities like Lompoc can help minimize our impact on the electric grid,” said Lompoc Mayor Jenelle Osborne. “I hope we see more cities and communities start adopting similar clean, renewable energy technologies in the years to come.

Requiring no connection to the electrical grid, Beam Global products eliminate disruptive construction projects, costly electrical circuit upgrades and utility costs to deliver significant long-term savings to city budgets. Because there is no grid connection, EV charging systems are quickly deployed, easily moved and can be placed where they are needed most.

“We see that more and more customers are considering rapid deployment and grid impact as important considerations when planning their electric vehicle charging infrastructure,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “Federal, state and local governments are increasingly focusing on resilient electric vehicle charging as electricity becomes a vital fuel for their communities and vehicle fleets.”

In January, California Governor Gavin Newsom introduced a landmark $10 billion zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) package to accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles and fight climate change. This package is an essential part of Governor Newsom’s vision to forge a future without oil. This $10 billion ZEV package builds on state action to fully shift new vehicle sales to all-electric by 2035, using California’s leadership to accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles and drastically reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
