The partnership will enable Greenie Energy to expand across ApnaComplex's pan-India network of 6,000 societies with more than 680,000 households.

Greenie Energy will supply and install 3.68 kW Level 1 EV chargers in society parking areas. Apart from educating on the operating procedure and protocols, the company will carry out maintenance, repairs, upgrade, and replacements for the charging point as required for the entire duration of the contract.

"Gated communities have a high number of vehicle owners. Equipping these societies with charging stations can go a long way in reducing emissions in our urban centres,” said Istayak Ansari, director and co-founder, Greenie Energy Technologies. “With this partnership, we hope to reach the average user who is looking for a reliable charging solution."

The partnership comes at a time when the state and central governments have increased their focus on promoting EVs as the preferred mode of transport in the public and private sector. This includes incentives on interest paid on loans taken for the purchase of EVs. EV sales in India have jumped to 330,000 units, going up by 168% from 2020.
