Magenta Power, a startup supported by HPCL, has announced its ambitious plans, to roll-out Street Lamp Integrated EV Charger – ‘ChargeGrid Flare’ by April 2020. This new range of EV charging points (ChargeGrid Flare), the first in India, is incorporated within energy-efficient street lamp columns, that shall encourage EV adoption for flexible and low cost charging solutions.
ChargeGrid Flare has been specially designed in partnership with HPCL, to offer energy-efficient street light combined with EV charging point. It is one of a kind product which offers integrated EV charging facilities from within a durable, traditional looking, street light. This unique technology, shall enable the city to deploy curb side vehicle charging more quickly, with lower cost, and less street clutter than other approaches. In the first stage, the EV Chargers (ChargeGrid Flare), shall be installed at HPCL retail outlets, in the major cities at pan India Level.
This EV Charger also becomes an ideal solution for installation into both new and existing car parking, street / corporate parking environments and at retail outlets.
Maxson Lewis, Director, Magenta Power during the launch said, “We are delighted to be adding ChargeGrid Flare to our already extensive portfolio of EV charging solutions. Understanding the existing EV Challenges, what we are aiming to do is, instead of getting the car parked next to a charging station we bring the charging station to where the car is parked. This product is made specifically for India with low footprint and power situations. With ChargeGrid Flare, we can build a dense and convenient EV charging infrastructure at low cost, with less clutter to the existing city landscape.
These street lamp EV chargers are easy to install and can be located by EV users using the ChargeGrid app. The entire charging and the payment gateway is already integrated into the ChargeGrid app.
