Tata Power setup 150 green-energy powered EV charging stations across Mumbai
On Wednesday, Tata Power said that it has set up 150 green energy-powered EV charging stations around Mumbai's residential communities, shopping centres, office buildings and gas stations.
Renewable/clean energy sources including wind, solar, and hydropower are used to power these chargers. The program is aligned with Tata Power's "Do Green" campaign, which aims to inspire its consumers to use green and sustainable energy solutions in their daily lives.
Tata Power and the National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Maharashtra, have also worked together to establish up to 5,000 EV charging stations around Maharashtra.
Over 200 electric bus charging stations, as well as more than 13,000 home chargers (for private use), are deployed throughout India by Tata Power. With more than 2,200 public EV chargers spread across more than 350 locations, Tata Power is India's leading provider of EV charging solutions.
Through its several green solutions, which include green electricity, solar rooftop, DSM Programs and home automation, the company has consistently worked to give green services to the residents of Mumbai. More than 17,000 clients in Mumbai have chosen green electricity as of this writing, which has reduced about 126 Kilotonnes of carbon emissions.
Commenting on this achievement, Sanjay Banga, President T and D of Tata Power said, "Tata Power believes that smart actions taken today will have a big influence on the environment in the future. Our EV charging stations that are powered by clean energy will help in the promotion of e-mobility. We firmly believe Mumbai citizens will lead the 'Do Green' drive and serve as a role model for other major cities considering faster EV adoption."
