NTPC Ltd today announced it has commissioned along with Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) its first Electric Vehicle charging station at Indian Oil COCO Petro Pump near New Holland Tractor plant, Greater Noida.
The two companies have joined hands to set up many such charging stations.
The EV charging station offers four charging points to consumers with fast and slow charging options conforming to Bharat DC 001 and Bharat AC 001 standards. At its onset, charging for electric vehicles at the station will be done free of cost.
