Tata Power installs two public 30 kW chargers at the Birsa Munda Airport, Ranchi.

The partnership between Tata Power and Ranchi Airport Authority is in line with Tata Power's commitment to promoting EV usage in India and supports the government's National Electric Mobility Mission Plan.

Tata Power, one of the country’s leading EV charging solution providers, has joined forces with the Ranchi Airport Authority (RAA) to install two public Level-1 chargers at the Birsa Munda Airport in Ranchi, Jharkhand.

The partnership between Tata Power and RAA is in line with Tata Power’s commitment to promoting EV usage in India and supports the government’s National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP). The NEMMP aims to facilitate the electrification of both private and public vehicles by ensuring the necessary infrastructure is in place.

Level-1 chargers, which are among the three different charging speeds for EVs, provide a lower charging rate ranging from 2.3 kW to 2.5 kW. These chargers utilize standard household electrical outlets, commonly known as AC outlets, to supply power to the EVs. Level-1 chargers are primarily suited to cater to the needs of EV owners who visit the airport to either receive or see off their family or friends, as well as EV cabs and pre-booked cabs awaiting passengers.

Tata Power has established an extensive network of over 3,778 public and captive EV chargers across 350 towns and cities in India. These chargers are strategically placed in various locations, including shopping malls, recognized highways, and metro stations, among others. Furthermore, the network comprises more than 39,000 home chargers and 234 bus-charging points, ensuring a comprehensive charging infrastructure for EV owners.

Speaking about the partnership, Mr. Virendra Goyal, Head Business Development-EV Charging, Tata Power said, “We are incredibly proud to engage with the Ranchi Airport Authority to install EV chargers. We remain committed to bringing EV charging infrastructure to where the customers are; in fact, it is another step towards realising our common commitment to sustainability and lowering carbon footprints. This is also certain to address the range anxiety amongst potential and current EV owners in the city.”

Mr.K.L Aggarwal, Airport Director, Birsa Munda Airport - Ranchi said, “We are pleased to collaborate with India’s most reputable and well-known energy firm. With this initial installation of EV chargers, we hope to serve hundreds of EV operators and families in Ranchi who come to see off or welcome their family and friends at the airport. While waiting, they can charge their vehicle from a trusted source without any hassle.”
