Envision Solar Exhibits EV ARC™ at the Silicon Valley Driving Charged and Connected Event

EV ARC™ Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Charger; Standalone Solar Charging Station Requires no Foundation, Trenching, Building Permit, Grid Connection

SAN DIEGO, CA --(Marketwired - April 24, 2014) - Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar," or the "Company"), the leading renewable energy Media and Branding product company, announced today the demonstration of its fully autonomous, fully mobile, fully renewable Electric Vehicle Charging station at the Silicon Valley Driving Charged and Connected Event occurring today at the SAP Palo Alto office location.

The EV ARC™ is a cost-effective, easy-to-install, standalone solar charging station that requires no foundation, no trenching, no building permit and no grid connection. The EV ARC™ being showcased today is not a demonstration unit or trade show model, it is a working EV ARC™ that currently provides work-place charging five days a week. Demonstrating its high degree of transportability the unit will be placed in service at the event with less than five minutes of set up time.

"This is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate the remarkable value delivered by this unique product," said Desmond Wheatley, President and CEO of Envision Solar. "EV ARC is a great fit for Silicon Valley and we are looking forward to demonstrating it to companies in the area who have not already placed orders. They will see that they can have solar powered EV charging working on their campuses within minutes. No other solution available today can offer this speed of deployment and the fantastic benefit of driving on sunshine. We look forward to receiving many orders as a result of this highly visible demonstration."

Invented, engineered and manufactured in the United States, the EV ARC™ fits inside a standard parking space and generates approximately 16 kWhrs per day that are stored and ready for use in the 22 kWh on board battery storage. The system's clean solar electrical generation is enhanced by the patented EnvisionTrak™, which enables the solar array to follow the sun, generating 18 to 25 percent more electricity than a conventional fixed array.

Navigant Research forecasts that the global EV market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.6% while the global market for gasoline vehicles will grow at a CAGR of only 2.6%. The US is the number one market for EVs and the growth in charging infrastructure is forecast at 128% CAGR. Solar powered charging offers the cleanest and easiest method for the deployment of such infrastructure.
