Driving on Sunshine
Welcome to Free Solar-Powered Electric Vehicle Charging in San Francisco
Charge Across Town’s Driving on Sunshine campaign launches in San Francisco in April 2015 and is funded by a grant from the 11th Hour Project, a program from the Schmidt Family Foundation. In collaboration with the San Francisco Department of the Environment, Driving on Sunshine, will showcase Envision Solar’s EV ARCs ™ in highly visible locations in San Francisco neighborhoods to demonstrate that driving on renewable electricity is emissions-free, and here today. FREE EV Charging from the sun will be available to any EV driver for up to 2 hours of charging, so that many EV drivers can share the resource. Watch this space for EV ARC locations and promotions!
Current EV ARC charging available from November to February at these locations:
Palace of Fine Arts
Impark on Embarcadero
Envision Solar’s EV ARCs ™
The 2.3kW Solar Array generates approximately 16kWhrs per day, which are stored, ready for use in the 22kWhr battery storage. Clean solar electrical generation is enhanced by Envision’s patented tracking solution – EnvisionTrak™ that causes the solar array to follow the sun as it moves across the sky.
Deployment time is about 5 minutes and the host will not experience any increase in utility bills caused by kWh charges or demand charges resulting from use of the chargers.
Driving on Sunshine offers an exciting new experience for motorists as they get around town fueled with power from the sun!
