Magenta Power, a pioneer in renewable energy solutions and EV charging infrastructure space in India, has installed an EV charging station named ‘ChargeGrid’ at the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL) staff colony in Chembur, Mumbai. The charging station can be connected and operated via Magenta’s ‘ChargeGrid App’ which will allow cashless transactions and remote monitoring for the EV users. ChargeGrid App provides an integrated platform for viewing network of charging stations.
The charger installed by Magenta Power shall have the ability to charge up to three electric vehicles (EV) at a time. It comes with an easy-to-use built-in touch screen feature so the users can conveniently charge without much hassle. The idea is to make charging experience as seamless as possible.
Speaking on the new installation, Maxson Lewis, Director, Magenta Power said, “At Magenta, we are fully committed to power our future in an environmentally sustainable way. We are elated to be associated with an integrated oil & gas company like HPCL for promoting the e-mobility initiative. This association will help us to scale our EV infrastructure on pan India basis as well as provide our customers with value added services in the e-mobility space. We envision this as a stepping stone to encourage users to opt for EVs in a hassle free manner and do their bit for mother earth.”
ChargeGrid shall be open to all the HPCL colony residents, who can charge their electric vehicles anytime safely and conveniently using the ChargeGrid chargers. The chargers shall also be used in the colony for charging the Mahindra e-supro passenger vehicles which the colony has recently acquired for using as shuttle service for their residents.
