Dallas County orders six Beam Global solar, off-grid, EV chargers

Solar-powered EV ARC EV charging infrastructure products are rapidly deployed with no digging, no construction and no electrical work.

Beam Global has received a $500k order for six EV ARC off-grid EV charging systems from Dallas County, Texas. The systems were purchased using the federal General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS), which can be used by many state and local government agencies when the charging systems are intended for EV charging and disaster recovery or preparedness purposes.

The Beam Global EV ARC off-grid EV charging systems qualify as disaster preparedness assets because they continue to charge EVs during grid outages and can be equipped with an emergency power panel for first responder use in emergencies, the company says. Each of Dallas County’s EV ARC systems integrates 2 Enel X Way JuiceBox Pro chargers to charge 2 vehicles simultaneously, and an Emergency Power Panel that can serve first responders with 120V and 240V electric outlets in case of an emergency.

Solar-powered EV ARC electric vehicle charging infrastructure products are rapidly deployed with no digging, no construction and no electrical work, Beam Global says. Off-grid and 100% solar-powered, EV ARC systems generate and store their own clean electricity and deliver that energy to up to six EV chargers capable of charging six vehicles simultaneously. The customer can choose any quality brand charger that works for their organization or use case, which is pre-installed on the EV ARC at the Beam factory and arrives at the customer site ready to charge EVs.
