SAN DIEGO, Feb. 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), a leading provider of innovative and sustainable infrastructure solutions for the electrification of transportation and energy security, announced that the North Carolina Department of Adult Correction has ordered 19 Beam EV ARC™ sustainable off-grid charging systems and 2 ARC Mobility™ trailers to enable efficient transportation of the products.
The Beam EV ARC™ systems are off-grid and powered by renewable energy, generating and storing their own clean electricity. Each system is deployed with no construction, no electrical work, no utility connection and is delivered as a turnkey sustainable charging solution. Because EV ARC™ systems are flood-proof to 9.5 feet, wind-rated to 160 mph and continue to provide electricity during blackouts, they are particularly well suited to provide disaster preparedness for DHS component agencies. The ARC Mobility™ trailer is a specialized hydraulic transport system designed to efficiently relocate EV ARC™ charging systems without the requirement for any other equipment or site work.
“Correction facilities and other secure or sensitive locations can rapidly deploy EV ARC charging systems without disruptive construction and electrical projects which introduce significant security risk and can be outright prohibited,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Our ability to have a single person deliver operational EV charging in minutes instead of months means that correctional officers do not need to security-clear multiple-member construction teams or manage security during lengthy projects. Any secure environment offers an excellent opportunity for further EV ARC deployments. This is another excellent example of the unique and valuable attributes our rapidly deployed, low touch, infrastructure products bring to the EV charging space.”
Government and private fleets are moving to electric vehicles which are less expensive to operate and maintain, and help achieve often mandated, zero-emission targets. Sites with physical security concerns like correctional facilities, both public and private, need EV charging infrastructure without the risk that traditional installation projects introduce. Onsite demand for EV chargers to support new fleet EVs, employee workplace charging and visitor charging is on the rise. The solar-powered EV ARC™ electric vehicle charging systems are rapidly deployed with no digging, no construction, no electrical work and none of the teams generally required to perform those tasks.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Census of State and Federal Adult Correctional Facilities, there are 4,527 federal, state and local correctional facilities in the U.S., both public and private. Beam Global anticipates that all such facilities will require EV charging particularly where mandates such as the federal government’s requirement that all light duty vehicles be zero emissions by 2027 are in force.
