Magenta Power Launches ‘ChargeGrid Flare’, India’s First Street Lamp Integrated EV Charger

Magenta Power, a HPCL startup providing green energy solutions, has launched its first Street Lamp Integrated electric vehicle (EV) Charger called ‘ChargeGrid Flare’.

The company has planned to roll-out its newly launched Street Lamp Integrated EV Charger into the market by next month this year. This new range of EV charging points, which is the first of its kind in the country, can be incorporated within energy-efficient street lamp columns that will encourage EV adoption for flexible and low cost charging solutions.

This unique technology will enable the city to deploy side vehicle charging more quickly, in lower cost. The chargers are easy to install and can be located by EV owners using ChargeGrid app which also integrates the payment gateway.

During the first stage, these EV chargers will be installed at HPCL retail outlets in major cities on pan India basis.

Commenting on the launch, Maxson Lewis – Director, Magenta Power, said “we are delighted to be adding ChargeGrid Flare to our already extensive portfolio of EV charging solutions. Understanding the existing EV Challenges, what we are aiming to do is, instead of getting the car parked next to a charging station we bring the charging station to where the car is parked. This product is made specifically for India with low footprint and power situations. With ChargeGrid Flare, we can build a dense and convenient EV charging infrastructure at low cost, with less clutter to the existing city landscape.”

“Taking another step towards Green Energy adoption, HPCL is glad to associate with M/s Magenta Power and bring the first of its kind EV charging solutions to Indian Markets,” said Mukesh Kumar Surana, Chairman & Managing Director of HPCL.
