In a major thrust toward green mobility, Tata Power has collaborated with the National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Maharashtra, to install up to 5,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points across its member's developer properties.
The MoU was signed on Thursday (28 April) at The Real Estate Forum, 2022, held in Mumbai.
"The collaboration is a huge step toward reducing carbon emissions and accelerating e-mobility adoption across Maharashtra," the company said.
Under this, Tata Power will provide a comprehensive EV charging solution across member developers of NAREDCO. The services will include installation, maintenance, and up-gradation of the chargers as and when required.
EV owners across NAREDCO's member developers' properties will access 24x7 vehicle charging, monitoring, and e-payments facilities through Tata Power's EZ Charge mobile app.
Tata Power EZ Charge is a mobile application helping users locate EV charging stations, charge EVs, and make bill payments online.
These EV chargers will be made available as Public/ Semi-Public Charging Stations based on the nature of the premises. This move will help commuters quickly access the chargers, encouraging them to use electric vehicles.
"Tata Power is a pioneer in the installation of EV charging points across the country, having a presence across all segments of the EV charging eco-system – public charging, captive charging, and home and workplace charging stations," the company added.
Tata Power has already partnered with Apollo Tyres, HPCL, TVS Motors, amã Stays & Trails, Lodha Group, Rustomjee, Enviro, and others to set up and enhance the EV charging infrastructure.
The company has deployed more than 500 public and semi-public charging points in Maharashtra and over 1,500 public EV charging points across different cities.
