Envision Solar Announces EV ARC™ Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) Advertising Platform

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - July 17, 2014) -  Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar," or the "Company"), the leading renewable energy Media and Branding product company, announced today that it has completed development of its EV ARC™ Digital Advertising Platform. The patent-pending EV ARC™ Digital is the world's first and only transportable, solar powered EV charging station with an integrated digital advertising screen.

The EV ARC™ Digital leverages Envision's patented tracking solution, EnvisionTrak™ to generate 18 to 25% more solar powered electricity than a standard fixed array. The energy is stored in on-board batteries and used to power the outdoor digital screen and ADA accessible EV charger without the need for any connection to the grid. Because the unit comes affixed to a ballasted platform, it requires no foundation, no trenching and no installation work of any kind. It is towed to the site and deployed in less than 5 minutes.

Users of the product will be able to offer EV charging and also digital signage without having to go through any of the costly and often difficult engineering and installation processes normally associated with fixed installations. The screen and the EV charger are vandal and theft resistant and the entire unit is designed to be monitored 24 hours a day. Digital content can be sent to the screen and its integrated media player across the wireless network that the EV ARC™ is connected to using the existing router.

"The EV ARC was already a very compelling value proposition," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar, "The addition of a digital advertising screen means that the easiest EV charger in the world to deploy is now also the easiest digital advertising platform to deploy as well. No cost of energy, no wiring, no installation and, we believe, the least amount of zoning and permitting hurdles in the industry. Our customers will be able to generate significant media revenue while offering the opportunity to drive on sunshine. If you thought you couldn't afford EV chargers or that they were going to be too hard to install EV ARC Digital will solve both problems for you and create a whole new set of opportunities."

Invented and manufactured in the US, the EV ARC™ fits inside a parking space and generates around 16kWhrs/day that are stored in the on-board batteries. The system's solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™, which enables the array to follow the sun, generating 18 to 25% more electricity than a fixed array. The EV ARC™ Digital has an outdoor digital advertising screen which is powered by the unit and receives content updates across the EV ARC™ unit's wireless network connection.

Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) advertising is the second fastest growing advertising medium after Internet Video according to PQ Media Research.
