The charging station is equipped with an analytica; platform to help locate the nearest EV charging station and make advance online booking and pay online through multiple options incliuding credit or debit cards, e-wallets, UPI and BHIM.

“Along with promoting renewable power in a big way we are now gearing up to aggressively push the case of electric vehicles and their charging infrastructure. We have also started inducting a fleet of electric cars and partnering organisations to set-up a network of e-charging stations – both for the captive use and for our consumers,” BRPL chief executive Amal Sinha said.

The total cost of charging, including the cost of electricity and the overheads — parking charges, recovery of equipment cost etc — is expected to be between Rs 160 to Rs 200 for a full charge.

“This translates into a Rs 1.60 to Rs 1.80 cost per km, which is extremely competitive compared to petrol, diesel and even CNG vehicles. Thus, a user can save substantially per km on an electric vehicle,” the company said in a statement.

BSES has entered into partnerships with many technological firms to set-up over 150 smart EV charging stations across its licensed area. Of this, around 50 smart stions will be set-up in the current financial year.
