Default KSEB to introduce EV charging stations & rentals in Kerala

Quote:
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Spurred by the 'green energy' concept, and forced to search for alternative sources of revenue in a state where industrial growth has stagnated, the state electricity board (KSEB) is looking to set up charging stations for electric vehicles in major cities. The board is also planning to introduce electric vehicles in major government hospitals and technology parks soon.

Here's an interesting discussion on a state-owned power firm rolling out charging stations in North India - related link.

Capital to get 32 charging stations for e-vehicles
Quote:
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: In a move to encourage the use of electric vehicles, Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) has submitted a proposal to the government to set up charging stations for electric vehicles at 185 locations in six cities across the state. The proposal has been considered by the government and as a pilot project, 32 e-vehicle charging stations will be installed in six locations across Thiruvananthapuram. KSEB has been appointed the nodal agency for setting up electric-vehicle charging stations and implementation of the e-vehicle policy.

It's been more than 2 years since this post. Has anything happened?

Some 8 odd crore has been allocated for setting up charging stations, so I guess this is the plan that is going to be implemented.

For anyone interested, KSEB's E-Mobility - Approach Paper is available here: http://kseb.in/index.php?option=com_...id=652&lang=en

I was surprised to see KSEB charging station near my home. Looks like they were serious about it.
I spotted total 4 electric cars in our city and all were Tatas.

Is there any place where we can get a list of all KSEB EV stations in Kerala ? I checked with one of my KSEB friend who is an As Ex Engr, but he did not have it. I had asked him list of all KSEB charging stations launched and proposed.
