Electrify America is sourcing the chargers from Envision Solar (Nasdaq: EVSI, EVSIW), a San Diego-based sustainable technology company. The EV ARC™ 2020 is a transportable, solar-powered electric vehicle-charging infrastructure product. Each standalone station is equipped with a 4.28-kilowatt (kW) sun-tracking solar array, 32kWh of on-board battery storage, and two Electrify America Level 2 EV chargers capable of charging speeds up to 6kW. This combination allows for two customers to charge their vehicles at the same time using 100 percent renewable electricity – regardless of weather or time of day.-----from this link: https://media.electrifyamerica.com/en-us/releases/91

That is some really slow charging. Hopefully this will be placed at some motels for overnight guest charging. Even then, its battery capacity is so small that it won't be possible to get even a half-charge fill up on MME.

We have to start somewhere, though... Here's to hoping for bigger captures of renewable energy and bigger batteries in the future. :)

That has got to be the dumbest thing to be working on. How about put more EV DC fast charging stations in the country before you focus your energy on something like that 🤦‍♂️

Given that EA has promised to install 800 DCFC's by the end of 2021 I think they can handle having more than a few balls in the air at the same time.
