A charging station comes into operation in Chandrapur

An electric vehicle (EV) charging station has been established and brought into operation in Chandrapur Municipality, Rautahat. Costing Rs 2.75 crore, the charging station was set up with the initiative of Chandrapur Municipality and support from the Madhesh Province.

While the number of EV charging stations is growing in Nepal, it still pales in comparison to the number of fuel stations (petrol pumps) and it’s simply not enough to move the consumers towards eco-friendly vehicles with peace of mind. But there are efforts made too. From now on, every new fuel station must have an EV charging station. Private, government, and manufacturers are also setting up their own charging stations in different parts of the country.

Add to it, most EV charging stations are in cities and in more affluent areas barring NEA’s 51 EV charging stations nationwide. But now, the charging station in Chandrapur seems to bridge that discrepancy. It’s a strategically located charging station for people who are set out on long trips.
