SAN DIEGO, Jan. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable technology for electric vehicle (EV) charging, outdoor media and energy security, announced that the City of Santa Clara in partnership with Silicon Valley Power deployed EV ARC™ solar-powered EV charging systems to serve city fleet vehicles and the public. The solar-powered EV charging infrastructure products include an emergency power panel for first responders and are off-grid, requiring no construction, no disruption to city operations, no added utility bill and providing a secure source of EV charging in the event of utility grid interruptions. Beam’s 100% renewably powered chargers demonstrate the City’s commitment to sustainability and building clean EV charging infrastructure.
“Increasingly, municipalities and others are realizing the cost savings of deploying Beam’s off-grid sustainable EV charging systems. With no construction, no electrical work and no permitting, EV charging can be deployed in minutes instead of months, saving significant cost and time,” said Beam Global CEO, Desmond Wheatley. “The City of Santa Clara is a leader in providing clean and free charging, with energy generated 100% from the sun, so their fleets and their citizens can drive on sunshine.”
On January 5th 2021, the Los Angeles Times reported that California Governor Gavin Newsom has pledged to spend $1.5 billion in boosting the purchase of zero emission vehicles and building new charging stations across California, seeking to pair an economic incentive with progress on California’s ambitious greenhouse gas reduction goals. In September 2020, Governor Newsom pledged to fast-track California’s environmental goals in response to the climate crisis. He issued an executive order that would require all new cars and passenger trucks sold in the state to be zero emission by 2035.
