Beam Global is partnering with Volvo Construction Equipment to allow Volvo CE’s 245 North American dealer locations to bundle Beam EV ARC off-grid charging systems with a purchase of Volvo electric equipment. The companies say this joint offering enables construction sites to rapidly deploy EV charging without the requirement for electrical work, utility grid connections or fossil fuel generators, to power zero-emissions construction equipment.
Volvo CE currently offers five models of electric machines in North America: The L20 and L25 Electric wheel loaders, and the EC18, ECR18 and ECR25 Electric excavators. Now, Volvo dealers can bundle transportable, off-grid solar EV charging systems with electric machine orders, the company says.
The EV ARC is fully autonomous, meaning it generates, stores and delivers electricity independent of the grid. Whether the project is in a remote nature preserve or a densely populated city with strict zoning rules, the solar-powered EV ARC can be deployed without any electrical work or permitting, the company says.
The offer is available through the Volvo dealer network. Because the EV ARC is part of the Extended Offer Catalog, Volvo Financial Services can be utilized to lease or finance the bundled EV ARC and compact electric machines with flexible financing options.
