CHANDIGARH: As the UT administration have installed charging stations in different parking lots in the city, they will now push for early fixing of power tariff for electric vehicle charging stations. The Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) is yet to fix power tariff for these stations.

The 90 kW charging station can charge around 65 cars in a day.

A senior UT official said that the UT electricity department in its power tariff petition submitted before the JERC had proposed a power tariff plan for electric vehicle charging stations. They will now request JERC for fixing power tariff as early as possible, he added. The department has proposed charging Rs 5 per unit in the slab of 0-150 units, Rs 5.30 and Rs 5.60 per unit in 151-400 units and above 400 units, respectively.

Central govt sent out the guidelines on EV charging infra. It also mentions the upper limit for tariff.

Quoting a part of the news article below.

"Power tariffs for charging EVs will be determined by the appropriate commission, provided these do not exceed the average cost of supply plus 15%."

If a charging station is installed in a public parking space, why are they thinking about a differential pricing? The logic is somehow lost in how our governments work.

Tata Power seeks to tap Delhi EV charging
Will provide Discounted Off-peak Hours charging would cost
Rs 0.30 per kilometer for electric vehicles
versus 5 rupees for fossil-fuel driven cars


Tata Power Co. is seeking to set up electric vehicle chargers in the Indian capital, a company official said, as one of the most polluted cities on earth plans an ambitious push toward cleaner vehicles.

Quote:

Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd., which supplies electricity to 1.64 million consumers in Delhi, has written to the local government saying it wants to set up charging stations for EVs and has requested land to build the infrastructure, Chief Executive Officer Sanjay Kumar Banga said in an interview last week.

The company could also offer cheaper rates for charging during off-peak hours, which could translate into the cost per kilometer for electric vehicles falling to as little as 0.30 rupees, versus 5 rupees for fossil-fuel driven cars, he said.

Separately, Tata Power signed a pact last year with oil retailer Hindustan Petroleum Corp. to set up charging stations at HPCL’s outlets and other locations across India. State-run NTPC Ltd. and Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. have also announced plans to set up electric vehicle chargers.
Lack of charging infrastructure has been one of the biggest hurdles to India’s ambitions to ensure more electric vehicles on its roads, with the federal government dithering on setting clear policy goals.
