The partnership between BSES and Magenta will help in faster reaching out to the various customers, thereby leading to faster fulfilment of the end customer’s EV charging solution requirements, the company said in a statement.
The company further added that significant challenges, such as low utilization of EV charging infrastructure and the long-term impact of the increase in the number of EV users on the power distribution network can be analyzed and addressed through the work carried out under this partnership.
Learnings from the implementation of new business models under this partnership will also help in improving and launching similar EV charging solutions and models in other parts of the country as well.

Magenta’s charging solutions are mobile application enabled (OCCP based).

The customers can also track the real-time availability of the chargers and approach the nearest available charging stations.
