Written by Akhil Dalvi

One of the leading global manufacturers of two and three-wheelers, TVS Motor Company, has begun its strategic partnership with Tata Power. Featuring one of India’s largest power companies, the agreement entails the implementation of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) across India. Along with TVS retail shops installing solar power technologies, the partnership’s aim includes producing a dedicated charging infrastructure for two-wheelers.

Tata Power EZ Charge

The partnership will not only accelerate electric mobility in India but also grant TVS iQube customers access to the charging network. Customers across India can use the network via the TVS Motor customer connect and the Tata Power EZ Charge apps. The joint venture also aims to develop an AC and DC fast-charging network for electric two-wheelers. The partnership will further promote EV adoption across India among its current and future two-wheeler customers into going electric.

Promoting Sustainability

Due to the change in the global climate, solar energy will play a huge factor in quelling the growing concerns. Solar energy will also play an essential role in promoting the adoption of clean energy by customers. The partnership aims to utilize solar energy by exploring opportunities to power select TVS Motor locations to promote sustainability.

Expanding the Presence of TVS iQube

The partnership also aims to widen the presence of TVS iQube Electric in over 25 cities within the next few months. The e-scooter is currently available at Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune, Kochi, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Surat, Vizag, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad. More than 120 cities in India feature Tata Power’s expansive charging network consisting of over 5,000 homes and 700 public chargers. The company’s presence is known across all EV eco-systems such as public charging, captive charging, home and workplace charging stations.

Solar Stations

Along with deploying all types of chargers, including DC and AC chargers, Tata Power also provides multiple large solar solutions. This successful background also includes the world’s largest rooftop (16MW) located at Radhasoami Satsang Beas (RSSB), Amritsar. The company also sports India’s largest synchronized grid and a 6.2 MWp solar carport at the Tata Motors car plant in Chikhali, Pune.

Solar Powered Cricket Stadium

Tata Power installed the world’s largest solar-powered cricket stadium at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) with an 820.8 kW capacity. The company also installed a unique solar vertical farm at Dell technologies with 120 kW of capacity. Additionally, Tata Power is currently executing an extensive pan-India residential rooftop program in more than 100 cities. The step is being taken to bring about awareness among people about the benefits of savings through solar energy.
