Free charging ports for electric vehicles

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Power distribution company BSES will offer free charging ports for electric vehicles for the duration of the Commonwealth Games. The initiative is aimed at reducing air and noise pollution. The company will provide 28 charge ports free till the Games and also plans to encourage the use of electric scooters.

“The company has entered into an agreement with the manufacturers of Hero electric scooters, which are being made available to employees at discounted prices and convenient instalments,” said a company official.

“Electric scooters, unlike their petrol counterparts, are very economical to run. They consume just 1 unit of electricity (costing between Rs.2.45 to Rs.4.65 per unit) for travelling 60 km. Whereas their petrol counterparts consume around Rs.40 to run the same distance. An electric scooter is also low on maintenance,” he added.

BSES will also install e-charge ports at vantage points across South and West Delhi.
