Tata Power, one of India’s major integrated power companies and providers of electric vehicle charging solutions, has converted over 1000 of its EV charging sites in Mumbai to renewable energy or green energy.

Mumbai is fast adopting e-mobility, with over 10,000 EVs and a growing number of four-wheelers on roads throughout the city. To facilitate this expansion, Tata Power is leading the building of a comprehensive electric vehicle (EV) charging system throughout the city. Currently, Mumbai has over 1000 green charging points, of which 44 are public, 385 are in residential communities, 58 are in commercial sites such as malls, hotels, and offices, and 531 are fleet charging points. Their presence in important places guarantees easy access for EV owners, according to the firm’s press release.

Furthermore, the network runs parallel to major roads, allowing electric vehicle users to commute between cities with ease. Tata Power has been offering EV charging services to players such as Everest and CAB-E, as well as EV charging sites in important residential societies such as Rustomjee Oriana, Rustomjee Elanza, Lodha The Park, Kalpataru Pinnacle, Lodha Primero, and The Reserve by Runwal throughout the city.

To promote intercity travel along popular routes, Tata Power has erected about 19 fast charging sites on the Mumbai-Pune highway and approximately 26 fast charging points on the Mumbai-Goa (via Pune) highway. Tata Power’s commitment to improving nationwide EV charging accessibility is reflected in its extensive network, which encompasses over 475 cities and towns and provides a variety of charging solutions customised to the demands of home users, public and semi-public, and bus fleets. Tata Power leads the way in pushing the transition to environmentally friendly mobility, with over 73,000 residential chargers, 5,300+ public, semi-public and fleet charging points, and 690+ bus charging stations.

Tata Power has announced an ambitious strategy to gradually expand its green energy footprint to include 4000 charging spots across the state. This development intends to not only increase the availability of accessible EV charging solutions but also to ensure that these stations are powered entirely by renewable energy sources. This programme is part of Tata Power’s ‘Sustainable Is Attainable’ movement’, aiming to establish the company as a pioneer in the transition to a greener future.
