BSES, which is responsible for the supply of electricity across Delhi, has tied up with an Indian startup to provide around 30,000 EV charging stations in the region in the next three years.
BSES, which includes Delhi’s DISCOMs like BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna, and Tata Power DDL, has got into a deal with EV charging station startup Kazam. Together, they will provide subsidies for electric vehicle charging stations in the national capital.
Through the deal, both companies aim for smart and affordable charging solutions for EV owners in the Delhi NCR region. The installation of subsidized electric vehicle charging stations will be for three years through a tender that was released in July 2021.
According to the deal, the Delhi government will provide a subsidy of up to 100 percent of the cost of the slow chargers and up to ₹6,000 per charging point for the first 30,000 charging stations. The subsidy will be given to the EV charging stations installed in semi-public locations like shopping malls, office complexes and hospitals. It will also apply to places like private properties which include bungalows and apartments.
