Visaka forays into solar-powered EV charging business


Telangana-based Visaka Industries, the maker of ATUM integrated solar roof, has announced its foray into the business of self-sustaining solar-powered electric vehicle charging.

The company would set up the solar-powered EV charging stations under ATUMCharge brand to support the shift to electric vehicles globally.

ATUMCharge stations will be powered by Visaka’s flagship product ATUM, the world’s first integrated solar roof.

Visaka claims ATUM solar roof is the right product for these charging stations as it can generate 40% more clean power from the same given space than any other solar solution. Besides, ATUM roof will allow the entire electric vehicle charging proposition to move to 100% solar—a clean and green power. In comparison, currently, most EV charging stations use electricity produced by thermal power generation plants, completely defeating the purpose of moving to environment-friendly power.

ATUM is a solar power-generating roof with solar panels (made with poly or mono-crystalline solar cells) integrated on cement boards—a highly durable roofing material, making it the world’s first solar panel which can be directly used as a roof.

Unlike other solar panels that need to be separately mounted upon a racking system and placed on the truss, Atum is both the roof and the solar panel. It provides a sleek and simpler integrated solar roofing system while increasing energy generation by up to 40% compared to convention solar rooftops.

ATUMCharge is also looking at partnering with other electric charging station providers who are either in the market or are planning to enter the business in the near future.
