BHEL Solar EV charging station & BMC public EV charging station installation
The Delhi-Chandigarh Highway has become the first eco-friendly highway in India. Bharat Heavy Electricals (BHEL) under the FAME-1 (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid) & Electric Vehicles in India) scheme of the Ministry of Heavy Industries has installed Solar-based Electric Vehicle Charging stations (SEVCs). The company inaugurated the state-of-the-art charging station at Karna Lake Resort.
The EV charging station is strategically located at the midpoint of the Delhi-Chandigarh highway and can charge all types of electric cars.
