Tata Power sets up 150 EV charging stations with 100% green fuel in Mumbai.

Tata Power on Wednesday announced that it has installed 150 "green energy-powered" Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations across residential societies, malls, commercial complexes and petrol pumps in Mumbai. These chargers are powered by renewable/clean energy sources like wind, solar, and hydropower.

"The initiative is in line with Tata Power’s 'Do Green' mission to encourage its customers to embrace green and clean energy solutions in their day-to-day life," said Tata Power president Sanjay Banga. The power firm has also collaborated with National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Maharashtra to install up to 5,000 Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points across the state, he said.

Tata Power believes that smart actions taken today will have a big influence on the environment in the future. Our Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations that are powered by clean energy will help in the promotion of e-mobility. We firmly believe Mumbaikars will lead the 'Do Green' drive and serve as a role model for other major cities considering faster EV adoption, Banga said.

The company also has a strong network of more than 13,000 home chargers (for private use) and more than 200 electric bus charging points installed across India.

Some of the other initiatives include green power for over 17,000 customers who have opted to pay premium tariff, solar rooftop installations in several buildings and institutions in Mumbai, home automation for over 10,000 consumers to conserve electricity. The green initiatives have helped mitigate around 126 kilo-tones of carbon emission in the city, an official added.
