Beam Global launches third-gen solar-powered EV chargers

Beam says its EV ARC systems are rated to withstand winds of 160 mph and can operate in up to 9.5 feet of flooding.

Beam Global has announced its third-generation EV ARC product line of solar-powered EV charging systems with a wind rating upgraded to 160 MPH. The company says that EV ARC infrastructure systems are designated by the federal General Services Administration (GSA) as disaster preparedness response and recovery products due to energy security and resiliency capabilities during grid outages and natural or man-made disasters.

Beam says its EV ARC systems are independently rated to withstand winds of 160 mph and can continue to operate in up to 9.5 feet of flooding. Each system generates, stores and delivers its own clean electricity and can be equipped with any quality brand EV charger, and an optional Emergency Power Panel which provides 120v and 240v outlets for use by first responders or other authorized users when utility power is not available.

According to Climate Central U.S. data analysis, about 83% of all reported power outages from 2000-2021 can be attributed to weather-related events, with the most recent decade from 2011-2021 experiencing 64% more major power outages than the previous decade, with an estimated $150B-$200B in costs to U.S. business every year.
