Electrify America brings solar EV charging to rural California.

The short version:

  • Electrify America is investing $2 million in solar-powered electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in rural California that are not tied to the electrical grid. 
  • The EV ARC™ 2020 is a transportable, solar-powered electric vehicle-charging infrastructure product. 
  •  Each standalone station is equipped with a 4.28-kilowatt (kW) sun-tracking solar array, 32kWh of on-board battery storage, and two Electrify America Level 2 EV chargers capable of charging speeds up to 6kW. 
  • Electrify America will deploy 30 of these across the Central, Coachella, and Imperial Valleys starting in the first half of 2020. 

Electrify America is turning into a pretty serious silver lining to VW’s “Desiel-Gate” These charging stations are roughly the size of a parking stall and can be installed in minutes. The article made no mention of the cost of these units, but I can only imagine it will come down as volume increases. How fantastic would it be to see these charging stations dotting the world in every 7-11 and Burger King parking lot?

Rivian wants to sell its trucks to you directly. Legacy auto dealers fight against it. So lame.

Thin, flexible, and just as efficient. Solar cells take a big step forward.
