ATUM Charge has completed the installation of 250 solar-powered universal EV charging stations across India in just six months.
These EV charging stations use ATUM integrated solar roof, enabling the entire electric vehicle charging proposition to transition to 100% solar. ATUM Charge will supply power wherever required and since the process is decentralised, it is less draining on the grid.
ATUM Charge has deployed these EV charging stations in Maharashtra (36), Tamil Nadu (44), Telangana (48), Andhra Pradesh (23), Karnataka (23), Uttar Pradesh (15), Haryana (14), Odisha (24) and West Bengal (23).
“The locations were chosen with the company’s strategy of focusing on Tier 1 and Tier 2 towns and cities in mind, as well as the encouraging rate of EV adoption in these states in mind,” stated the company.
In the coming months, ATUM Charge plans to expand into additional cities and states.
Each ATUM Charge EV Charging Station requires approximately 200 square feet and takes about a week to install. The cost of each station varies depending on the available area.
Vamsi Gaddam, founder of ATUM Charge, said, “With the launch of 250 ATUM Charge EV charging stations, we have renewed our pledge to support the EV ecosystem in India. EVs are a necessity because they help save the environment from harmful emissions while also reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and lowering our fuel costs. What makes ATUM Charge truly unique is that it is powered by ATUM – the world’s first electricity generating solar roof. 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.”
ATUM Charge has currently installed 4kW capacity panels that can charge up to 10-12 vehicles (2/3/4 wheeler) per day, given that any EV today takes 6-8 hours to charge fully. The company will install an additional 6kW capacity, allowing it to charge 25-30 vehicles per day.
ATUM Charge is also partnering with various other charging station owners to supply them with ATUM solar roof.
ATUM Charge stations are fabricated using Vnext boards – a range of fibre cement boards which are excellent eco-friendly alternatives to gypsum, wood, and plywood.
