In an event of enormous significance amidst the electric vehicle (EV) revolution brewing in the country, India’s largest EV charging station with a capacity of 100 charging points for four-wheelers was inaugurated on Friday along the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway in Gurugram.
Alektrify Private Limited, a tech-piloting company, has developed this particular station.
Previously, the country’s largest EV station was located at Navi Mumbai, which hosts 16 AC and 4 DC charging ports for EVs, The Economic Times reports.
“This station is now open with 96 chargers for technical inspection for various ‘Certification Compliance’ and ‘Safety Standards’ laid two week ago by Power Ministry, Govt of India and which also opened the doors for offering government land to government or public agencies and private entities for setting up charging stations on a revenue-sharing basis,” Alektrify explained in an official statement.
The representatives from government agencies took an entire tour of the station during the inauguration.
They were given information regarding the government standard compliances and the most optimum industry-level practices being adhered to in the formation and subsequent station functioning.
