Beam Global Receives Orders from California DGS, Multiple Federal Agencies and Private Enterprise Customers

San Diego, California, UNITED STATES


SAN DIEGO, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beam Global, (Nasdaq: BEEM, BEEMW), the leading provider of innovative sustainable products and technologies for electric vehicle (EV) charging, energy storage, energy security and outdoor media, announced that the California Department of General Services (DGS) placed a follow-on order for 23 EV ARC™ sustainable EV charging systems in the first quarter of 2022. Several federal agencies and an increasing number of private enterprise customers placed multi-unit orders during the same period, along with other orders.

The government customer systems will be used to charge fleet EVs and to provide energy resiliency and disaster preparedness, providing local, state and federal government entities with access to vital fuel for EVs and electricity for other purposes in emergencies, disasters and grid outages. Private enterprise customers are using the sustainable charging systems to provide rapidly deployed EV charging for employees, visitors and customers as EV adoption gains momentum.

“Beam Global had a record year of deliveries and revenue in 2021 and we have just announced that we made more deliveries in Q1 of ’22 than in any prior Q1 in our history,” said Desmond Wheatley, CEO of Beam Global. “The sales team was busy in the quarter too and we see the momentum continuing with these orders, both repeat and new, from excellent customers. We are delighted to continue to receive orders through the California contract as well as all the others, and we anticipate even more growth from our recently announced Federal Blanket Purchase Agreement.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom presented a $286.4 billion budget proposal, dubbed the “California Blueprint,” in January. The plan suggests spending $22.5 billion to address the burgeoning climate crisis in the state, allocating $6.1 billion to electric vehicle related initiatives. California also became the first state to commit to effectively banning sales of new, internal combustion engine or gas-powered vehicles by 2035. President Biden signed Executive Order 14008 and subsequent Executive Order 14057 with its accompanying Federal Sustainability Plan which calls for 100% Zero-Emission Vehicle Acquisitions by 2035, including 100% light-duty acquisitions by 2027.

California and other state, local and municipal entities can purchase from DGS Contract #1-18-61-16, and federal agencies can purchase from GSA Contract Number 47QSWA21D0006. Both contracts serve to simplify the government procurement process and make chosen solutions available at the best negotiated pricing.
