The Telangana Energy Department on Friday issued orders fixing ceiling cost Rs 12.06/kWh as service charge by EV public charging stations.

The Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation Limited (TSREDCO) has been appointed as the State nodal agency for the implementation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the State. Around 118 EV charging stations are being set up in Hyderabad by the Department of Heavy Industries.

Accordingly, TSREDCO requested ASCI to prepare a draft proposal. After careful consideration of the matter, the government fixed the ceiling cost of service towards electric vehicle charges, installed under State subsidy at Rs 12.06 + GST.
