San Diego Airport Testing a Portable Solar EV Charger

"This charging station, we should see it in as many places around the globe"
"Administrators at the San Diego International Airport wondered if customers would find value in an electric vehicle charging station. Until now, they would have had to invest tens of thousands, especially if they wanted a solar-powered charging station, just to find out."
But Envision Solar just deployed its new EV ARC, a completely mobile and solar-powered electric vehicle charging station that fits within a single standard parking space. Because the station doesn’t need any permitting, grid connection or new infrastructure, the company was able to deliver it to the cell phone lot at the airport on Tuesday and have it up and running with a car plugged in to charge within a few hours, said Envision CEO Desmond Wheatley.
