Harry Myhre (“Myree”) on Beam Global

…a company from San Diego, California has built a stand alone EV charger that could be installed anywhere. This charger doesn't need to be connected to the grid (mains?). It has a giant solar panel that acts like an umbrella over the car. The user pulls up, plugs in and charges their vehicle. Great for those with sun, I guess!
