Fresno County Unveils Countywide Solar Powered EV Charging Program Using Envision Solar's EV ARC(TM)

SAN DIEGO, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 05/26/17 --  Envision Solar
International, Inc. (OTCQB: EVSI) ("Envision Solar," or the
"Company"), the leading renewably energized EV charging, outdoor
media and energy security products company, announced that the Fresno
County Rural Transit Agency (FCRTA), San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution
Control District (SJVAPCD), the California Department of
Transportation (Caltrans), the California Energy Commission (CEC) and
CALSTART unveiled a program providing the Company's EV ARC™ solar
powered electric vehicle charging stations in 13 rural incorporated
cities throughout Fresno County. This is the largest single
deployment of solar powered electric vehicle charging stations in the
County and the first to link all the rural cities in one single

FCRTA selected Envision Solar's EV ARC™ product, which is the only
rapidly deployable, transportable solar powered EV charger available
while simultaneously being the only renewably energized EV charging
solution which provides both EV charging and emergency power during a
grid failure. 

State of California contract #1-15-61-16 was awarded to Envision
Solar to supply EV ARC™ products to State of California Departments
and other local governmental agencies or entities. Both the SJVAPCD
and FCRTA provided funding for the purchase and deployment of the EV
ARC™ products, which include back-up energy storage for emergency
services. The CALSTART San Joaquin Valley Clean Transportation Center
is funded, in part, by a grant from the CEC. The FCRTA funding was
provided, in part, by Caltrans.

"This project is a great model of what can be done via partnerships
and cooperation to develop truly sustainable transportation. The
California Energy Commission, through its support of the CALSTART
center, is very pleased to be part of this project that makes cars
powered by the sun a reality in rural Fresno County," said
Commissioner Janea Scott. 

An electric vehicle which is recharged by EV ARC™ products has a
total emission level which is effectively zero. The EV ARC™ products
will provide no-cost charging for San Joaquin Valley EV drivers,
helping to make electric cars more affordable for Fresno County
residents. 12 of the 13 units are located in disadvantaged

"This is an important project that demonstrates that running cars
powered by the sun is not a dream but an actual reality. CALSTART is
very appreciative of the funding support provided by the San Joaquin
Valley Air Pollution Control District, the California Energy
Commission, Caltrans and the Fresno County Rural Transportation
Agency," said CALSTART President and CEO, John Boesel. 

"We view this as an important step in building the electric vehicle
market in the San Joaquin Valley," said CALSTART's San Joaquin Valley
Regional Director, Joseph Oldham. "We are very interested in
replicating this project in the other counties in the valley," said

"Fresno County has shown great leadership in providing our EV ARC
products to their constituency," said Desmond Wheatley, Envision
Solar's CEO. "Free solar powered EV charging is a fantastic fit in
this hard-working area of the State where pollution is high and
incomes are low. We look forward to fulfilling many more deployments
for Fresno County."

Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARC™ fits inside a
parking space and generates enough clean, solar electricity to power
up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. The system's solar electrical
generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ which causes the array to
follow the sun, generating up to 25% more electricity than a fixed
array. The energy is stored in the EV ARC™ product's energy storage
for charging day or night and to provide emergency power during a
grid failure. Because the EV ARC™ product requires no trenching,
foundations or installation work of any kind, it is deployed in
minutes and can be moved to a new location with ease. EV ARC™
products are manufactured in the Company's San Diego facility by
combat veterans, the disabled, minorities and other highly talented,
mission driven team members.
