“Utilities continue to take advantage of the unique ability of the solar-powered EV ARC to be placed where EV charging is needed most, without the limitations of lengthy permitting and costly construction projects,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “Utilities are adopting Beam’s innovative infrastructure solution, implementing off-grid EV charging powered by locally generated and locally stored energy. These systems are becoming part of an emerging energy resilience strategy for utilities.”

According to a leading analyst report, From Reliability to Resilience: Confronting the Challenges of Extreme Weather, 90% of electric utility grid executives agree that extreme weather due to climate change poses challenges to their operations and profitability, while only 24% of North American utility executives surveyed felt well-prepared.
