The society has taken a step towards environment conservation
On Sunday 6 March, Akshara Element society from Wakad inaugurated EV Charging station in their society premises.
The society installed four Electronic Vehicle Charging Stations in its premises. At a time four vehicles can be charged.
The EV charging station is open for society residents only.
Speaking with Pune pulse, the society secretary, Akshara Elementa society said, “As government is promoting Electric Vehicles (EV) and people are also looking forward to buy EV to live a sustainable life we took the green initiative. Our society residents want to by EV but they were waiting because there was a bit confusion where to charge the vehicle. Currently a few of our society residents are having electric vehicles car and bikes too. But a confusion is seen where to charge the vehicle as for everyone we can’t give separate point from the meter room to charge the vehicle. So, we thought of it installing a EV Charging station in our society. The EV charging costs 15 Rs per unit to society which we have made available to residents at 18 Rs per unit cost.”
“Society is willing to install EV meter so that this charging will become cheaper for us. Once we install the EV meter it will cost us 5 Rs per unit, and society will charge it at 8-10 Rs per unit for charging the vehicle. We are in process with MSEDCL and waiting for sanctioning of EV meter to us, ” he said further.
