New York City Awards Multi-Year Contract to Envision Solar to Purchase EV ARC(TM) Solar Powered EV Chargers

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 18, 2017) - 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 New York City has issued a three-year contract to purchase the Company's EV ARCtm products. The contract has a posted initial value of $3.8M and an optional one year renewal at the end of the three-year term.

New York City has announced that its first order will be for at least thirty EV ARCtm units in 2017, making it the largest single order of EV ARCtm products in the Company's history. The first units purchased through this contract were delivered last week (May 10th) and were featured at the City's 29th Annual Fleet Show at the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows. The EV ARCtm units charged EVs and supplied the event's power needs before being relocated to their permanent locations at the World's Fair Marina and Thomas Edison High School in Queens.

New York has also ordered the Company's unique ARC Mobilitytm transportation system, which allows a single operator to pick up and move an EV ARCtm anywhere within a 1500-mile radius.

The EV ARCtm units will be deployed across the five boroughs and will deliver solar powered EV charging to the City's fleet of electric vehicles.

Using Envision's solar powered EV ARCtm products enables New York City to continue to execute on Mayor de Blasio's NYC Clean Fleet initiative. Fleet vehicles which charge from the EV ARCtm are 100% emissions free, which is not always the case with grid powered EV chargers.

The EV ARCtm product is also immune to grid interruptions, such as those experienced during hurricanes or terrorist or nefarious nation-state actions. New York's use of the solar powered chargers will ensure that fleet vehicles remain in service during grid failures. The EV ARCtm model selected by the City is capable of folding down during a hurricane. It continues to generate, store and deliver electricity in its low-profile hurricane configuration.

Each EV ARCtm is also equipped with an emergency power (E-Power) panel, which allows first responders and other vital personnel to use the EV ARCtm as an emergency generator during disasters or other grid outages.

New York City will avoid utility costs through the use of EV ARCtm solar powered EV chargers. The fact that they double as emergency generators which need not be stored, fueled or maintained will generate further economic benefits.

The disaster preparedness and resiliency capabilities offered by the EV ARCtm are unique within the EV charging industry and were a significant consideration in New York City's selection process.

"New York City is one of the world's most recognizable brands," said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Envision Solar. "Amongst all the available choices they have selected our American made, secure, solar powered EV charging station showing that the world's greatest city can drive on sunshine and save lives with our solar powered energy storage units."

Invented and manufactured in California, the EV ARCtm fits inside a parking space and does not reduce available parking in any way. It generates enough clean, solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving each day. The energy is stored in the EV ARCtm product's energy storage for charging day or night or for use by first responders or others during grid outages. Because the EV ARCtm 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 ARCtm products are manufactured in the Company's San Diego facility by combat veterans, the disabled, minorities and other highly talented, mission driven team members.
