Beam Global announced that New York City has deployed additional EV ARC solar-powered EV charging systems, expanding its fleet of the Beam systems to 89.
The new units are designed to be flood-proof to 9.5 feet, wind-rated to 120 mph, and feature an emergency power panel to serve as emergency preparedness equipment for fleet operators and first responders during grid failures and extreme weather events. The EV ARC systems are also transportable, off-grid, and require no construction, permitting, or electrical work.
“We are seeing an increase in extreme weather events across the U.S. and globally. Nobody can afford to lose their fueling infrastructure for prolonged periods,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “The EV ARC can charge EVs during the power outages that are an increasingly common result of this climate shift and other factors affecting our grid.”
