The first of its kind public charging station will be functional 24*7 initially with the unique Made in India Streetlamp Integrated EV Charging Stations.
MUMBAI, dec 29 (The CONNECT) - Magenta Charge Point Operator (CPO) for electric vehicle (EVs) in collaboration with Central Railways has installed a public charging station along the Parel Railway Station. The charging station was inaugurated by Maharashtra Industry Minister Subhash Desai. Over the next two weeks, Magenta plans to set up EV charging stations along the Dadar and Byculla Railway stations as well
The first of its kind public charging station will be functional 24*7 initially with the unique Made in India Streetlamp Integrated EV Charging Stations (ChargeGrid FLARE) and subsequently with DC Fast chargers. This combination of AC and DC chargers will support 2-wheelers, 3-wheelers and 4-wheelers. These chargers can be operated through the ChargeGrid App with online remote monitoring which includes an automated payment gateway, thereby eliminating the need of having a station marshal to monitor, maintain & operate the chargers at the location.
Desai expressed the hope that the initiative will bring relief to people who can charge their EVs at key locations near Railway stations as well.
Magenta is currently in the process of installing 4,500 chargers across 108 cities in India.
Maxson Lewis, MD & Co-founder of Magenta Group said, "Installing EV chargers at Mumbai Railway Stations is a dream come true for me at a personal level. The adoption of electric Vehicles cannot be said to have taken off, if the common man’s concern of EV charging is not addressed; and what better than making EV charging available at the most synonymous locations for Mumbai’s common man – railway stations.”
