New Delhi: TPDDL i.e. Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd, one of the distributors of private power in Delhi, has plans to set up a 1,000 charging stations for electric vehicles throughout the national capital in the years to come. They have estimated an investment of Rs.100 crore to achieve the goal in five years.
The MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) and DMRC(Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) are being involved and talks are on about the locations and space needed for the same. There are 5 locations where such stations exist, which were established on a pilot basis. These stations analyzed the type of vehicles and their needs. These will be taken into account while developing the large scale infrastructure.
The TPDDL are unaware about the demand at the same time vehicle owners are worried about the scarcity of charging stations once they purchase such cars. However, a balanced growth is needed from both ends.
8 e-rickshaws and 42 e-scooters have been deployed by Power-DDL in their maintenance test. An all electric vehicle country would lead to less pollution and reduce the costly energy imports. Thus India has a goal to achieve this by 2030.
