East Delhi commissions its first smart EV sharging station

BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) and EV Motors India Pvt. Ltd. (EVM) have joined forces to set-up smart electric vehicle charging stations.

As part of this venture, the first smart public charging station under the corporation was inducted at Patparganj, East Delhi, Manish Sisodia, Delhi’s Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister.

Speaking on the occasion, Sisodia said, “Electric Vehicles are the future of India. Expanding EV adoption will lead to a curb in pollution.”

“Electric vehicles are our future as we can make Delhi pollution-free. People who have purchased EVs are currently facing charging issues. This EV charging station installed here will solve that problem”, Sisodia added.

Positioned in IP Extension, Patparganj, the smart EV charging station, named ‘PlugNgo’, is assisted with Central Management System (CMS). This will help to supervise operations of the EV charger and deliver on-site and on-demand customer support. It will also provide information on preventive maintenance as and when requisite. Depending on the make, an e-vehicle can be fully charged between 45 and 90 minutes. The charging stations under PlugNgo in Delhi are projected to cater to the charging requirements of 15 to 18 cars per day.

The newly launched station will be armed with two forms of chargers - DC 50 kW with three guns (CCS2 + CHAdeMO + Type 2 AC) which can charge Hyundai Kona, MG ZS EV & Tata Nexon, and DC 30 kW with 2 Guns (Both GB/T) which can charge Mahindra e-Verito & Tata Tigor. Two electric vehicles can be charged concurrently from each charger.
