New Delhi: The Government’s intent to revamp the EV charging station network in Delhi was given a fillip with the entry of ETO Motors, the leading electric mobility solutions and services company. ETO Motors has joined hands with BSES and Tata Power DDL to set up around 2000-3000 EV charging stations in the next 2-3 years. ETO Motors has already set up over 30 MWs 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 to help India overcome its charging infrastructure challenges. The Company is looking at a horizon of 5 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 subsidized 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 it’s installation through a single call or an online order. As an incentive, the Government of NCTD would also provide a subsidy of up to Rs. 6000 per charging point, for the first 30,000 charging stations.
“ETO Motors is delighted to contribute towards the National Capital’s move towards electric mobility, by being one of the empaneled players in this initiative by BSES and Tata Power DDL, which would be pivotal in ushering in the EV ecosystem.”, said Mr. N. K. Rawal, Managing Director & CEO of ETO Motors.
The Government of NCT, Delhi had announced the Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy on August 7, 2020, with a vision to promote the adoption of Electric Vehicles in the city and to make Delhi, the EV Capital of India. The Policy aims to achieve the overarching objective to improve Delhi’s air quality and create an entire supply-chain ecosystem for this new segment of vehicles. As an empaneled vendor of the three DISCOMs’, ETO Motors will set up Electric Vehicle Chargers at Semi-Public sites like Malls, Offices, Colleges and along with privately owned spaces such as residential and apartment complexes.
