Mumbai: 20 vehicles used EV charging station so far at Kohinoor building parking lot in Dadar West
In Mumbai, so far 20 vehicles have used the EV charging station at Kohinoor building parking lot in Dadar West, in a week since its inauguration. This is the first EV charging station in a public parking lot. State Environment Minister Aaditya Thackeray on 18th of this month inaugurated the EV charging station and said that more such stations would come up.
BMC is also exploring locations on municipal properties where charging points for the EVs can be installed. In the first phase, the civic body is trying to set up 35 charging points, which will later be increased to 100. Civic officials said they were also planning to install solar energy plants instead of conventional energy for charging points.
