ETO Motors builds EV charging infra
ETO Motors Pvt. Ltd. has joined hands with BSES and Tata Power DDL to set up around 2000-3000 EV charging stations over two to three years in the DelhiNCR region. ETO Motors has already set up over 30 MW of EV charging infrastructure across the country and this association with BSES and Tata Power DDL is in line with the company’s commitment to provide smart and affordable charging solutions aimed at overcoming charging infrastructure challenges. The company is looking at a horizon of five years to set up over 10,000 EV charging stations in the region. ETO Motor’s appointment and empanelment by Delhi’s Distribution Companies (DISCOMs’), namely BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna and Tata Power DDL for the installation of subsidised electric vehicle charging stations was done for a period of three years through a tender floated by BSES Rajdhani on behalf of the three DISCOMs’ in July 2021. The Delhi Government has decided to set up a single-window facility and empanel vendors through DISCOMs’ for the smooth rollout of EV chargers in private and semi-public places. The single window facility will enable the consumers to compare costs and features of different chargers on the DISCOM websites, order a charger and schedule its installation through a single call or an online order. As an incentive, the Government of NCTD also plans to provide a subsidy of up to Rs.6,000 per charging point, for the first 30,000 charging stations.
