“Georgia Power is a strong supporter of the electrification of transportation. The EV ARC™ 2020 from Beam is part of our overall strategy to provide a robust public charging network to our customers and visitors,” said Georgia Power Company Electric Transportation Manager, Darren Epps. “Emission-free charging supports sustainability measures, and because the EV ARC™ is off-grid, it also serves as an energy resiliency source for local EV drivers.”
“Georgia Power is taking advantage of the unique ability of Beam’s EV ARC™ 2020 to be transportable yet permanent. The solar EV charging unit will debut at the Motul Petit Le Mans event before being moved to its home base for public charging,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Utility companies are increasingly telling us that off-grid sustainable EV charging is an important component to the rapid future growth of EV charging infrastructure.”

The EV ARC™ 2020 provides long-term infrastructure flexibility to support growing EV charging needs for businesses, government facilities and municipalities with a transportable, resilient and 100% off-grid solution. Unlike grid-tied charging systems, EV ARC™ units can be deployed or relocated in minutes without the need for permitting, construction or electrical upgrades. The technology also strengthens its users’ energy security and emergency preparedness. Equipped with both solar generation and on-board energy storage, EV ARC™ units can provide 24/7 access to clean charging even during grid outages or inclement weather.
