Kazam, an IoT-enabled charging station startup, has joined hands with BSES in a tender for an EV charging station network.
The announcement, said a press release, is in line with Kazam’s commitment to provide smart and affordable charging solutions to help the country overcome its charging infrastructure challenges. In the past few months, it has installed over 600 charging stations in 11 states.
Kazam’s appointment by Delhi DISCOMs, namely BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna, and Tata Power DDL, for the installation of subsidised electric vehicle charging stations will be for three years through a tender that was released in July this year.
For the first 30,000 charging stations, the Government of NCT of Delhi would provide a subsidy of up to 100 per cent of the cost of the slow chargers and up to Rs 6,000 per charging point. The subsidy will be given to the first 30,000 charging stations sold under this scheme. It will be applicable to semi-public locations such as malls, workplaces, hospitals, and shops, as well as private property owners such as bungalows and apartments.
Mr. Akshay Shekhar, Co-founder of Kazam, said, “Kazam is on a quest to develop an ecosystem for electric vehicle charging networks using cutting-edge hardware and software solutions. We are elated to have been chosen by BSES and this association will allow us to realise our goal of making electric mobility accessible to all.”
