Accordingly the state of Andhra Pradesh may take the lead in welcoming electric vehicles (EVs) in the country, by setting up charging stations across the state. Even though India has been facing a severe crisis on the petroleum products front with rising crude prices and the US dollar exchange rate going through the roof, there appears to be very little sign of worry on the part of those in power at the centre.



Meanwhile it is in this context that the news of Andhra government setting up 50 EV charging stations comes as a pleasant surprise. Moreover the project is being spearheaded by the Energy department of the AP government and the first such charging station is going active within a week at the Interim Government Complex in Velagapudi.

Presently the department has taken upon itself the task of launching around 1,000 to 1,500 EVs and the EV charging stations will come up in the state’s new capital Amaravati and in key cities like Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati and Guntur and moreover the project is expected to serve the twin purpose of controlling the air pollution as well as reducing the use of petrol and diesel. As per report the electric vehicles are being delivered by a firm Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) and the first batch of around 300 vehicles may start arriving in July itself.
