Date: 04 Jan 2022
Government’s intent to revamp the EV charging station network in Delhi was
given a fillip with the entry of ETO Motors, the leading electric mobility
solutions and services company. ETO Motors has joined hands with BSES and Tata
Power DDL to set up around 2000-3000 EV charging stations in the next 2-3 years.
Motors has already set up over 30 MWs of EV charging infrastructure across the
country and this association with BSES and Tata Power DDL is in line with the
company’s commitment to provide smart and affordable charging solutions to help
India overcome its charging infrastructure challenges. The company is looking
at a horizon of 5 years to set up over 10,000 EV Charging stations in the
Motor’s appointment and empanelment by Delhi’s Distribution Companies
(DISCOMs’), namely BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna and Tata Power DDL for the
installation of subsidised electric vehicle charging stations was done for a
period of three years through a tender floated by BSES Rajdhani on behalf of
the three DISCOMs’ in July 2021.
Delhi Government has decided to set up a single window facility and empanel
vendors through DISCOMs’ for the smooth rollout of EV chargers in private and
semi-public places. The single window facility will enable the consumers to
compare costs and features of different chargers on the DISCOM websites, order
a charger and schedule it’s installation through a single call or an online
order. As an incentive, the Government of NCTD would also provide a subsidy of
up to Rs. 6000 per charging point, for the first 30,000 charging stations.
Motors is delighted to contribute towards the National Capital’s move towards
electric mobility, by being one of the empaneled players in this initiative by
BSES and Tata Power DDL, which would be pivotal in ushering in the EV
ecosystem”, said N. K. Rawal, Managing Director & CEO of ETO Motors.
Government of NCT, Delhi had announced the Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy on
August 7, 2020, with a vision to promote the adoption of Electric Vehicles in
the city and to make Delhi, the EV Capital of India. The policy aims to achieve
the overarching objective to improve Delhi’s air quality and create an entire
supply-chain ecosystem for this new segment of vehicles. As an empaneled vendor
of the three DISCOMs’, ETO Motors will set up electric vehicle chargers at
semi-public sites like malls, offices, colleges and along with privately owned
spaces such as residential and apartment complexes.
