eVolt To Set Up EV Charging Network In Delhi

EV charging infrastructure startup eVolt has been appointed by Delhi's three electricity distribution companies to set up EV charging stations across the nation's capital.

The appointment of eVolt by BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL) is for a three year period and will see the startup set up a robust charging network in the city of New Delhi.

eVolt will set up electric vehicle chargers at semi-public sites including malls, offices, and colleges. The startup will also install charging stations in privately-owned spaces such as residential and apartment complexes.

The Delhi Government will be offering a subsidy to help set up the charging network in the city as per its new EV policy that aims at making Delhi the EV capital of the nation. The National Capital's government will offer a subsidy of up to 100 per cent on slow chargers (up to Rs 6,000 per charging point). This subsidy will be limited to the first 30,000 chargers.

eVolt was founded in 2019 with the goal of making EV charging accessible using a well-connected smart charging network that is built via strategic partnerships with public and private property owners.

Speaking about his company's appointment to set up Delhi's EV charging network, Sarthak Shukla, Founder and CEO, eVolt said, "We, at eVolt, are happy to be appointed for this initiative by BSES, as it is a crucial step in Delhi's switch to e-mobility. Being a homegrown startup with a local presence, it is good to see Delhi going electric, charger by charger. We'd like to thank the Government for actively promoting the development of a robust EV charging infrastructure, as a fully-developed charging network is the backbone of EV adoption,"

eVolt is one of more than 10 vendors empanelled by Delhi's electricity distribution companies to set up a robust charging network in the nation's capital.

The Delhi government has also decided to set up a single window facility through which Delhi residents can compare the features and costs of different chargers. Residents can also place an order for a charger and schedule its installation by either ordering online or over the phone.

eVolt currently offers multiple solutions for those looking for EV charging points. For residences, the electric vehicle infrastructure startup offers AC chargers ranging in power from 1.4kW to 22kW. For businesses, eVolt offers a range of load-balanced AC charging solutions with power outputs ranging from 3.3kW to 22kW.

For taxi fleets, eVolt offers both AC and DC charging solutions. These solutions are compatible with the full range of Fast AC and DC solutions across all standards including Type 2, IEC, CCS, CHAdeMO & Bharat DC/AC with power outputs ranging from 3.3kW to 120kW.

eVolt also offers fast AC and DC charging solutions for retailers looking to provide their customers with that extra incentive to choose them over rivals. Fast AC charging solutions offer power outputs ranging from 7kW to 22kW.

Also offered are fast DC chargers that up the output to a range between 60kW and 120kW. eVolt also offers its fast DC chargers to companies looking to set up charging stations on the highways. Both these charging solutions offer features like IP54 rating for dust and water resistance, dynamic load balancing, Wifi, OCPP support and RFID card based authorisation.

Thoughts About Delhi's Upcoming Charging Infrastructure

The national capital of Delhi has been choking on its own air for a while now. Hopefully, more people will start buying EVs in Delhi thanks to the new robust charger network which we hope means that the nation's capital will begin to slowly but surely claw its way out of its current smoggy predicament.
