The vision is to have an ElectriVa charging point every 20 kilometers, co-founder Dhanuka said
Electric vehicle charging provider ElectriVa is looking to get the first-mover’s impact in the market as it prepares to set up one lakh charging points across India in the next three years, ElectriVa’s founder Sumit Dhanuka.
“We are going to install an electric charging point every three kms in Delhi and at all key locations. The same will be replicated across all metros,” he said.
The vision is to have an ElectriVa charging point every 20 kilometers, Dhanuka added. ElectriVa had recently bagged the contract for installing and operating 100 EV charging stations in Delhi and another 150 are in the pipeline.
The company said the impetus provided by the government in the budget will give EV charging infrastructure a massive push in the country.
The company has earmarked three priority areas to grow. One is the contracts being awarded by municipal corporations for intra-city set-ups.
The second is setting up infrastructure along key highways and partnering with the national and state highway corporations.
The third is providing decentralised charging points at housing societies and RWAs.
Dhanuka said that the company is eyeing contracts from other government authorities and utilities as well.
