The company says that the faster the charging infrastructure develops in the country, the faster the adoption of electric vehicles will increase. Tata Power has provided charging stations around malls, shopping complexes, hospitals and residential complexes in different areas of Mumbai, so that people do not have to travel far for charging.
Tata Power claims that the electricity supplied in these charging stations is being generated from renewable energy sources like wind, water and solar. During the launch of the charging stations, Sanjay Banga, President, Tata Power said that the company is committed to give a clean future to the people of the country and is continuously working towards reducing carbon emissions. He said that Tata Power is also working on the project of charging stations in other big cities.
