The state government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to set up 400 charging stations in the state. It also said that the state government is also considering a proposal to study real-time performance impact of providing electric two-wheelers to ward and village secretariat staff.

The government also has plans to set up testing facilities for vehicles and components, and intelligence testing tracks for electric vehicles with an investment of Rs 250 crore. In a webinar conducted on the ‘Go Electric’ campaign organised with support of Andhra Pradesh State Energy Conservation Mission (APSECM), the energy secretary Srikant Nagulapalli said that the state government is taking steps to establish charging infrastructure for every 25 kilometres on national highways.

He added that the government wants to make more charging stations available to citizens in coming days. Installing charging stations will boost confidence of users of electric vehicles. It will encourage companies to launch more electric vehicles. This would also help the state in taking a lead in the emerging electric vehicles industry, increase energy security, control pollution and improve air quality.
