Solar-powered EV charging solutions provider ATUM Charge has announced that it has completed the installation of 250 Universal Electric Vehicle charging stations across the country in just six months.

Of the 250 stations, as many as 36 have been set up in Maharashtra, 44 in Tamil Nadu, 48 in Telangana, 23 each in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and West Bengal, 15 in Uttar Pradesh, 14 in Haryana, and 24 in Odisha, the company said in a declaration.

The locations were chosen with the company's strategy of focusing on Tier-I/II towns and cities in mind, as well as among an encouraging rate of EV adoption in these states.

In the upcoming months, the company intends to expand into additional cities and states, it said.

The first such charging facility was set up by the company in Hyderabad in September last year.

The charging solution uses an electricity-generating integrated solar roof, which allows the entire electric vehicle charging proposition to transition to 100 percent solar, whereas conventional EV charging stations generate electricity using thermal power, putting an additional strain on the power grid, as per the company.

''With the launch of 250 ATUM Charge EV Charging Stations, we have renewed our pledge to support the EV ecosystem in the country. The steady phasing out of thermal power stations and replacing them with solar-powered stations is our end goal.

''We aim for zero emissions, net-zero facilities, a sustainable network, and a greener forever. Change has begun and the wheel is ours to steer,'' stated Vamsi Gaddam, Founder, ATUM Charge.

The company said it has at present installed 4-KW capacity panels that can charge up to 10-12 vehicles of all types -- two, three, and four-wheelers -- per day, given that any EV takes at present 6-8 hours to charge fully.

The company will install an additional 6 KW capacity, allowing it to charge 25-30 vehicles per day, going forward, it added.

ATUM Charge is also associating with various other charging station owners to supply them with ATUM solar roofs, thereby facilitating a green power source, it said.
