CHARGE+ZONE has successfully deployed its first 200KW solar rooftop for Ashok Leyland’s electric buses in Patna, which is able to source 20% of its daily energy requirements through green energy. The company plans to introduce renewable energy for their high-speed charging network for electric buses and commercial vehicles across India.
Over the last 3-years, the company has successfully built an EV charging infrastructure of over 700+ fast DC charging stations across the Indian market, with the network rapidly being expanded for both inter-city travel across 3000 kms as well as urban e-mobility applications.
Charge+Zone has strong partnerships across Electric Bus OEMs such as Ashok Leyland, Volvo-Eicher and GreenCell Mobility; as well as with OEMs of the emerging segment of electric trucks, CHARGE+ZONE looks to tap an important source of electricity i.e. renewable energy. It expects to cover at least 25-cities for renewable energy powered charging stations for Electric buses /commercial vehicles.
The Indian market now rapidly embracing Solar & Wind energy across sectors along with the new energy exchange opening up, there is now a distinct viability of EV charging networks being powered by non-conventional sources of power.
Charge +Zone is introducing renewable energy powered EV charging stations aligned with the government’s hybrid renewable energy policy of Solar & Wind, that offers higher capacity utilization (CUF) compared to stand alone Solar or Wind projects.
Speaking on the development, Mr. Kartikey Hariyani, Founder & CEO, CHARGE+ZONE said, “The timing of this announcement could not have been better as our team of 100+ electrical engineers continue to push the energy envelope for a monthly sale of 3 million energy units to its existing customers and scout the opportunities beyond."
Since 2019, with the EV space constantly evolving in the Indian market, CHARGE+ZONE has been progressively investing and developing large EV charging hubs for various e-mobility companies . The company recently completed the electrification of over 1000 kms of National Highways in India, by installing a network of twenty(20) unmanned, app driven, Superfast EV charging points along the Gujarat- Maharashtra National highway and also is currently powering 500+ electric buses across key cities in the country. Apart from creating an active B2B and B2C network for EV charging stations for both fleet and retail customers, it has set-up up 1450+ charging points across 650+ EV charging stations, serving around 5000 EVs on a daily basis.
