Beam Global, a prominent provider of innovative and sustainable infrastructure solutions for transportation electrification and energy security (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), has reported a more than 20% year-over-year increase in new unit sales from county-level entities. This growth includes both new county customers (56%) and returning repeat county customers (44%).

County parks, county hospitals, court systems, public works (water and utility), public transit centers, fleet facilities and child support services are among the recipients of the solar-powered EV ARC™ EV charging infrastructure products. Off-grid EV ARC™ systems generate and store their own electricity, and are deployed with no electrical work, no construction and no utility bill, reducing the county governments’ costs through avoided construction, electrical upgrades, operational disruptions and ongoing utility bills. The systems can continue to charge EVs during blackouts and include an optional Emergency Power Panel that can provide vital electricity to first responders during disasters, emergencies and power outages.

“County level entities have a broad area to cover and are expanding EV charging infrastructure to support sustainability initiatives, community programs, fleet electrification and emergency preparedness,” said Beam Global CEO Desmond Wheatley. “In the past we’ve seen strong orders for county fleet vehicles, which continue to grow, and this year we are also seeing an expansion in public charging at county parks, hospitals and civic centers, allowing more and more people to Drive on Sunshine.”

There are 3,143 counties in the United States. Beam Global is supplying EV ARC™ systems to a growing number of them and considers county governments as another significant growth opportunity. Local, state and federal government entities, including utilities and academic institutions can procure Beam Global products using the California Department of General Services (DGS) contract #1-22-61-16 which is open to government entities outside California and ensures the best negotiated pricing. Beam Global products are also on the federal General Services Administration (GSA) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006 as part of GSA’s Disaster Purchasing Program which allows state and local government entities to buy directly from all GSA Schedules to facilitate disaster preparation, response, or major disaster recovery.
