Mumbai-headquartered Magenta ChargeGrid has installed around 116 private electric vehicle (EV) charging points under the Delhi government’s Single window scheme.
 
To accelerate the adoption of EVs and curb air pollution, the Delhi government aimed to deploy 25 per cent of all new vehicles to be battery operated by 2024.
 
These chargers have been installed across Delhi including Munirka, Chattarpur, Jamia Nagar, Vasant Kunj, Dwarka, Rohini among others.
 
The EV charging solutions provider has been empanelled by three Delhi Discoms namely BRPL, BYPL and TPDDL for 3 years to set up an EV charging stations network across the Capital. Also, around 100 EV chargers are installed in different Discom offices.
 
Commenting on the Delhi government’s subsidy scheme, Maxson Lewis, Founder and Managing Director of Magenta, said “We support the Delhi government initiative of making Delhi the EV capital of India. The attractive purchase incentives provided by the Government will surely make the cost of owning and operating an EV affordable.”
 
He further added, “keeping with the trend for home EV charging, which generally accounts for 70-80 percent of worldwide charging demands, we are planning to cover around 5,000 installations of home chargers by the end of this year under this scheme. We have successfully deployed the highest number of EV charging points under this scheme.”
 
With recent rising cases of fire incidents due to use of unsafe domestic sockets for charging leading to the loss of life and property, it's important to use dedicated charging points with in-built protection, Lewis said.
 
The LEVAC chargers are best designed for private use and the AC001 for residential purposes. The private EV charger costs around Rs 2,375/- after subsidy. The low-cost AC charger also has several innovative features such as auto charging session resume in the event of a power failure and is equipped with multiple protections to protect against electronics short circuits, over current, over-voltage, and ground fault.
 
These chargers are also extremely ‘Easy to Install’ and take up very little space as they can be placed on the wall or on a stand. These smart chargers can be operated through the ChargeGrid mobile application by all EV users.
