Two EV Charging stations come into operation in Sarlahi

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) has started two electric vehicle charging stations in Sarlahi. Installed at the East-West highway at Hariwan Municipality-11, Khasibajar, the authority brought two charging stations into service to help EV owners to charge their vehicles on the highway.

Planned under the Energy Ministry, the two charging stations are of 142kW capacity. There are two 200kVa transformers to back up the charging stations where up to six EVs can be charged simultaneously, shared NEA’s Lalbandi distribution center chief engineer Sanjiv Kumar Sah.
