Tata Power and Kolkata Airport Join Hands to Set Up EV Charging Points
Tata Power is a company that makes electricity. They have a group company called TPEVCSL that makes places where you can charge your electric car. They have made four such places at the Kolkata Airport. They opened them on Tuesday. You can charge any electric car in India at these places.
Virendra Goyal, Head of Business Development (EV Charging), at Tata Power, said, “Our collaboration with Kolkata Airport places us at the forefront of building a robust EV charging network in the city and the nearby areas. This underscores our unwavering dedication to sustainable mobility, with the ultimate aim of empowering individuals to embrace electric mobility confidently, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience for everyone involved.”
C Pattabhi, Airport Director, Kolkata, said, “The installation of EV charging infrastructure in public parking areas not only enhances convenience for electric vehicle users but also signifies a steadfast commitment to environmental conservation. We are delighted to partner with Tata Power, as their vision harmoniously aligns with our aim of metamorphosing Kolkata into a cleaner and more environmentally conscious city, thus securing a sustainable future and bolstering the state’s aspiration to spearhead the EV revolution in India.”
The location of these charging stations was carefully considered, with a focus on accessibility and convenience for EV users traveling to the airport or neighboring areas. This considerate strategy guarantees a smooth charging procedure inside the airport’s boundaries as well. These chargers are ideally situated to provide unrivaled convenience to the public, successfully alleviating problems linked to EV range anxiety, the business claimed in a media release. This is because of the airport’s prominent position as one of the city’s busy centers.
Tata Power has already made significant progress, installing more than 50 public and semi-public charging stations throughout Kolkata.
Tata Power is the biggest company in India that makes places where you can charge your electric car. They have more than half of the market.
