Beam Global, the leading provider of innovative sustainable technology for electric vehicle charging, outdoor media and energy security, announced that Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport deployed the airport’s first EV ARC™ solar-powered EV charging system to charge airport EVs, and the EVs of employees, staff, travelers and visitors. The system was funded through the U.S. Department of Energy in the Mid-Atlantic Electrification Partnership to support regional expansion of EV charging infrastructure.
The airport’s EV ARC™ system is off-grid and powered by renewable energy, generating and storing its own clean electricity. The system is equipped with 2 Enel X JuiceBox® Pro EV chargers that are factory integrated at Beam and delivered as a turnkey sustainable charging system that is rapidly deployed. The system is solar-powered, requiring no disruptive construction, no costly electrical upgrades and will generate no utility bill.
